The quote is almost too much.

The College of Charleston women’s basketball team will have two victories reversed after the Colonial Athletic Association determined the team used “improperly sized” basketballs during conference home games at TD Arena, the league announced on Thursday.

The College of Charleston used men's basketballs in home victories against William & Mary (70-60) on Jan. 6 and UNC Wilmington (76-37) on Jan. 8.

The team unknowingly had been using the wrong basketballs at home games the entire season, according to athletic department sources. The college stopped using the men's basketballs prior to its home game against Elon on Jan. 13.

UNC Wilmington coach Adell Harris told the Wilmington Star News on Thursday that her players realized the College of Charleston was using men's basketballs when they played the Cougars on Jan. 8.

"Every kid, and even the coaches, said, 'Those are men's balls,'" Harris said. "We asked their manager, 'Hey, can you get us the women's rack.' They said it was the women's rack, but that people talk about them all the time feeling like they're men's balls.

No pics of the women's rack? How are we supposed to judge their size?

Men's balls in women's racks? This USED to be a family friendly site.

In defense of the home team coach, she said "Look, my assistants and I have very little experience with men's balls. We just didn't know what we were playing with."

When will the political correctness stop. The women can no longer play with men's balls, they can only play with there own rack. That's just wrong!!
