    I'm fully on board with wearing a mask - but in my opinion, wearing cloth or surgical non-N95 masks while playing games that require sprinting, and very heavy breathing, and very close proximity (while fighting for post position, etc.) for long stretches of time, places too much faith in the efficacy of the mask. more than is justified by the actual efficacy.

    Just don't play the games

    Gotta love the hypocrisy of Holy Cross. Their number one concern should be the welfare of the kids in their care. Nope.

    Jesus will protect our kids so we don't need to. If that was true he would not have sent covid in the first place.

    Almost as deep as cherry picking bible verses that serve your narrative and ignoring the ones that don't.

    GT @ ND set for tomorrow postponed because of GT Covid issues. Hope the herd immunity theory was in full effect this past Sunday.

    Grainy photo from today's Holy Cross at BU game (the first D1 game with both teams donning masks):






    A few questions/observations:

    - does wearing a mask around your chin prevent infection?
    - is being able to breathe freely important when playing basketball?
    - HC looks a little slow on D.
    - There is a reason white guards generally don't rise above the Patriot League level.
    - BU apparently took the no fans thing to the next level by building a wall at one end of their basketball arena

    Holy Cross loses at home without masks, gets the road win today wearing (chin) masks

    but as the photo illustrates, wearing masks while playing basketball is really dumb

    We play our first high school game in masks in a couple of hours. Half of my team is out for quarantine, so I'm dressing 6. Should be a lot of fun, I'll let you know how it goes. Play on, and such.

    Kids don't want to be subbed for anyway. Hope it includes your Top 3/4 players.

    I covered a high school game last night. Playing in masks seemed difficult, most of them drooped down under the nose as the players did normal basketball activity.

    There was no jump ball to start the game, I'm guessing there was a coin toss to determine start and then alternating possession arrow.

    They also cleared the gym after the girls game so they could spray disinfectant in the bleachers before the boys game. The teams had their temperature checked before they entered the gym, and the visitors never went to a locker room, they just changed their shoes at the bench area.

    If we think college hoops is a disaster waiting to happen, I just don't see how high school hoops is going to make it through even a shortened season.

    So your district has embraced the herd immunity strategy, huh?

    Clemson hoop on a paws (pause). The Tigers had a good shot to run their streak at UNC to two in a row, but their scheduled games against UNC Saturday and Cuse on Tuesday have been postponed. UNC will now play Cuse on Tuesday.
