...especially if players start getting light headed or passing out from lack of air. Adrenaline and speed of play make a game far different than a practice. It who;;, however, probably be the same for both teams.
They and we have been practicing in masks for weeks now. Not sure we've seen a rash of fainting players in practice so I wouldn't expect it in a game.
Not a fan of the decision, but can see why someone who is more risk averse would require it. You've been practicing against a core of well controlled, essentially cloistered teammates wearing masks, but you'd allow them to play against a group of "outsiders" without a mask? That doesn't make much sense.
It's all about risk tolerance. BU, perhaps due to the size of the school and the city they are in and that's city's requirements, are less risk tolerant.
And if that's what it took to get games played vs. not, give me a mask.

I put in a call to the BU coach, claiming that I was with the CDC. I suggested that BU players should wear the masks on offense but not on defense. He seemed amenable to that directive. That may help us score some baskets in transition as the BU players fumble with donning the masks. Stay tuned.
