Barney Sedran Player
Inducted in 2006
Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Inductee 1962
"The Mighty Mite of Basketball", at just 5-foot-4 and 115 pounds, Sedran was the smallest player ever elected to the Naismith Hall of Fame. Known for his lightning-fast moves and superior passing skills, he was a standout guard at City College of New York from 1909 to 1911. Sedran turned pro in 1912 with the Newburgh Club, and then starred with Utica of the New York State League. Considered one of the best players in basketball's early years, Sedran once scored 34 points on baskets without a backboard. For Utica, Sedran teamed with 5-foot-7 Hall of Famer Max Friedman to form a backcourt duo known as the "Heavenly Twins." He led Utica to a World Professional Championship in 1914 and later led Carbondale to the Pennsylvania League championship and 35 straight wins in 1917.
