Men’s Basketball on the Outside Looking In

For the Siena Heights University men’s basketball team, practice has been looking a little different this year. It is still unknown if the basketball team will even have a season this year due to the pandemic. There are a lot of precautions that the team has to make this year such as wearing a mask during warm-ups, trying to stay 6 feet during practice, and getting screened before practice.

In addition to all this, the water fountains have been turned off so all players and coaches have to bring their own water to all practices and workouts. This is a change that everyone, including the coaches, are going to have to get used to.

The basketball team, as of right now, can’t even work out in the fieldhouse. Their practices have mostly been outside. This is going to be a real challenge for the strength and conditioning coaches this year, as they will have to come up with new ways to work out since they can’t use the weight room.
