Syracuse Orange players try curling … on a court … with basketballs (video)
While not an exact or suitable simulation of the conditions typical of curling in a traditional sense, the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team gave curling a crack, albeit in an unconventional manner making use of items at their disposal.
Jerami Grant, CJ Fair and BJ Johnson are featured in a video posted to Instagram by assistant coach Nick Resavy and as you can see, brooms were used but the stone was replaced with a basketball.
Clever enough, to be sure, but as far as unconventional — or inappropriate, as is arguably the case here — coverage on curling is concerned, I’d prefer to focus solely on ogling photos of the Russian women’s curling team.
