Boston University and Holy Cross really just played an entire basketball game while wearing masks
· Jan 5, 2021 ·

Okay, so I guess basketball can get softer after all...

Yes, Boston University's basketball team will be wearing masks during play for the entire 2020-21 season. They did so last night in their season-opening win at Holy Cross.

Holy Cross did not wear masks, however, because they were the home team and they happen to be men.

In today's game, which is the second game of the home-and-home series, Holy Cross was forced to wear masks on the court—which is required on campus at Boston University. Holy Cross won the masked-up game 68-66.

So yes, history has been made! For the first time EVER both teams in an NCAA basketball matchup proved that they're either a bunch of girls, really stupid, or just doing what the boss man says by wearing masks during play.


This is obviously really dumb, and I don't mean to judge these individual men for wearing the masks (I just can't help it). It's honestly just a stupid policy at Boston U.

But come on you guys! These are competitive athletes. They're all over each other in the first place. Boxing out, posting up, setting screens, denying the pass, trying to dunk on each other, trying not to get dunked on, wrestling for loose balls.


So if you're going to let the guys play, LET EM PLAY! According to SCIENCE it's probably not safe to play the game at all, EVEN WITH THE MASKS ON. Like, where's the social distancing? When are they washing their hands? And why can I still see nostrils out there all over the court?

At this point, you're just pretending to care and trying to make yourselves look smart.

Honestly though, you look really stupid, and I'm embarrassed for your student athletes.

Looking at you Boston University.
