    That says professional sports entities, in guessing the school would be different?

    Yes, but might become a "logo" at some point...

    NCAA BB Rules

    With whiskers, of course.

    I vaguely recall Anthony James wearing a mask briefly during his playing career...am I right, or was it someone else?

    Yes, Hamilton had to have one due to multiple broken noses. He called it his Superman Cape and used it for the rest of his career.

    I am confident AJ will adjust well. He is a motivated young man who seems like he will do what he needs to in order to succeed.

    imagine if wearing a mask became trendy (like those "shooter sleeves" or whatever they're called). And players started putting custom designs on their masks like NHL goaltenders do with their masks/helmets.
    fun times

    I’m confident AJ could make most of these shots with his eyes closed, so hopefully the mask isn’t an issue. Better a broken nose than a broken hand.

    Well if anyone can adapt it is AJ. Full faith that it won't impact him. There are some good articles about the impact of wearing a mask on professional athletes and their performance with and without the mask. In most cases it didn't affect their shooting which is encouraging.

    I would think he is going to be practicing with it this week so perhaps by Thursday it will be second nature to him.

    Certainly going to be interesting to see how AJ plays, I'd assume since he mostly takes jump shots and doesn't get physical, it'll have less effect than someone who plays the opposite style, but I'm basing that on "I'd assume."

    Broken nose. Seemed like a near certainty watching live
    That is what the Courier is reporting today:

    Yea, No idea. I was assuming the opposite and it would be a nuisance while shooting. No idea though
