Battle of the Mustaches

DePaul, ever conscious of mustaches, was involved in a special halftime event.Sam Murphy [DePaul-51] v Jimmy Murray [MBI-88], both sporting grand mustaches more likely scene in a different era.

Two players were circled by both teams around the tip-off circle, as per Chicago custom in Gladiator style dodgeball. Each player is given a ball, with one neutral ball placed in the center of the ring. They tapped balls in chivalry, backed off, and the Referee whistled to begin. Both players threw quickly at the other, but both missed their respective targets. Sam Murphy leaped at the center ball, sliding across the floor and making a push throw at Jimmy Murray’s legs in one fluid motion. The ball made contact with Murray, resulting in DePaul winning the first actual Battle of the Mustaches.
