During the Homecoming Game on February 27, senior Enzo Mazzulli (white jersey, Gold Team) powers through Black Team defenders to make a layup shot. The game was the culmination of the basketball "experience" program that ran in lieu of the cancelled regular season due to the pandemic. Streamed virtually, the event did not have live spectators and all players underwent Covid testing before they could play. Photograph by Justin Mayeshiro ('22).

Even though the ILH season was cancelled for basketball this year, HBA ran a basketball “experience” for its athletes. At the start, the athletes began participating first in individual drills outdoors. Then they were allowed to move into the gym. Then they began drills where they were allowed to share basketballs. In mid February, they were allowed to have 5 on 5 scrimmages. Throughout, the players have had to wear masks, wash hands, and sanitize hands and equipment. They’ve also had to stay socially distanced.

On Saturday, February 27, the school was able to host Homecoming/Senior Night basketball games for HBA’s boys and girls team, with teams split up into “Black and Gold” teams. All players were tested prior to the game. Unlike any Homecoming game in school history, there were no spectators allowed. Instead, supporters were encouraged to attend the games virtually by making cardboard cutouts or signs. The game was live-streamed on the school website.
