A college basketball season like no other kicked off with dozens of games across the country.

It took a strange build-up to get to this point and it continued with the first day of games.

Teams played in mostly empty arenas as the sounds of coaches yelling and squeaking sneakers echoed off the seats.

Cheerleaders wore masks where they were allowed and seats on the benches were spread out for social distancing.

Multiple teams made statements for social justice and a few games also were canceled due to positive COVID-19 tests.

On the floor, the game looked as good as ever, with several standout performances.
