The spaced-out bench seating has been the funniest thing to see in the tournament. These players are on top of each other on the court but have to be spaced out on the bench? If that’s necessary, why didn’t they do the same in football? And why do the coaches wear the masks if the players benefit from reading their lips and they have to pull the mask down anyway? Logic. Geaux Tigers.
