Big Ten teams are complaining about Maryland's Under Armour brand basketballs. The visitors say the weight and feel are off and are more like a "street ball." BC, like all Under Armour schools, uses the same ball.
While I heard a few whispers about Under Armour shoes over the years, I have never heard anyone related to BC complaining about the basketballs. This all seems a bit whiny to me. If the schools really cared about consistency, they would adopt a universal ball. But that would leave too much money on the table.
I don't think the problem with BC Basketball is Under Armour, but we can add it to the excuse list.
