Boston University players were masked up when they took the court for their season opener at Holy Cross on Monday, a policy the school put in place amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

It didn’t seem to bother Boston University players, as the Terriers won the game, 83-76.

Holy Cross players were not wearing masks during Monday’s game, but they will be on Tuesday when the two play again in Boston. BU has mandated that opponents wear masks when playing on campus.

It is believed that Tuesday’s game will be the first where both teams wear masks while on the floor.
