Syracuse basketball guard Joe Girard III speaks to the challenges of playing during a pandemic.

The 2020-21 campaign for Syracuse basketball and its peers around the country has proven tough, with game postponements, program pauses and the like, but Orange sophomore point guard Joe Girard III is doing his best to stay positive, work hard, improve his craft, and help his team pile up victories however he can.

The entire ‘Cuse program already has been on pause twice in the present term, and its most recent hold on basketball activities means that the squad hasn’t suited up for an official game since mid-December, and the Orange only recently returned to full practices.
