One of the most anticipated games in Herkimer County Basketball history is set to take place on Saturday, February 11 at 7 p.m. as Springfield 413 Elite comes to Herkimer to face the Originals at Herkimer College. Both teams will be playing for both bragging rights and also be looking to improve their resumes heading into the ABA Playoffs.

This matchup is arguably the greatest rivalry in all of the American Basketball Association (ABA). Regardless of the outcome of the game, you can count on the Herkimer Originals turning the contest into a must-see spectacle.

We will also be honoring Lambert Will from the 1891 Herkimer YMCA, nominated for the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2023 located in Springfield, MA.

The Herkimer Originals are a minor league basketball team playing in the Northeast division of the ABA (American Basketball Association). 

The name Herkimer Originals, as well as its “hooped” logo, was thought up by rock-star and long time friend of Scott Flansburg, Alice Cooper – who continues to rock the stages throughout the world.

The name Herkimer Originals and its logo “originated” with the fact that Herkimer, NY was the origin of the game of basketball: Lambert Will was the inventor and drove the rules development; the first game (on Feb 7, 1891); the first rim and net (knitted by Lambert Will’s mother), and the first backboard in 1893; all from the Village of Herkimer and surrounding communities.
