Career Highlights:
Krinsky played at Harvard in the 1950s and was a teammate of All-Ivy League player, Harry Sacks. Unfortunately, the Crimson were not a good team during Krinsky's college career. They finished 5-17 (0-12 in conference) in 1952 and 7-16 (2-10 in conference) in 1953. His senior season (1954), Krinsky was captain of the Harvard team and helped lead them to their best season during his career, finishing 9-16 (2-12 in conference).

After his playing days, Krinsky became a coach at Westbury High School on Long Island and posted a record of 278-124 during his 20-year career. He also served as an advance scout in the NBA for three years (two with the Detroit Pistons and one with the Houston Rockets). Krinsky is also the general manager of the New York Express of the new American Basketball Association.
