Default Long Island Ducks - EBA Basketball

Looking for any information or photos from the Long Island Ducks of the old Eastern Basketball Association.
In my regular search for stuff from the Long Island Ducks of the old Eastern Hockey League, I came across the pictured dureen jersey as well as a pair of warm-up pants. These came from a former neighbor of team owner Al Baron.
Thank you for any help you might be able to offer.

Still looking for photos.
Here are a couple links to stories on the Long Island Ducks of old EBA.
The second is a partial article from the New York Times.
If someone has a subscription and would post the full story, I would be very grateful.
Thanks all.
John

Mike Meadows hook over Quincy (Mass) Chiefs defender at Long Island Arena in Commack.
From NY Times on Feb 1, 1978.
Thanks to Warren (BTPH) for getting the photo in forum shape so I could download it.

This photo increases the value of the jersey, no doubt.

I have been able to track down a roster for the LI Ducks and number 20 was worn by Charles Gugliotta from Union College. He is the older brother of longtime NBA'er Tom Gugliotta. Their father was a legendary basketball coach on Long Island where the family hails from (Ward Melville HS). Quite a bit of Long Island hoops history tied up in this one.
