The Syracuse Orange are among eight schools and nine programs with brand new Nike Hyper Elite Platinum uniforms.They will wear the uniform once and only once (much to many fans' delight). That will be the game against the South Florida Bulls on February 22nd.
The other uniforms will only be worn once by each team on the following dates: UConn vs. Notre Dame (1/29), Kentucky vs. Tennessee (1/31), Duke vs. Maryland (2/11), Baylor (women’s) vs. Texas A&M (2/11), Florida vs. Tennessee (2/11), Arizona vs. UCLA (2/25), UConn (women’s) vs. Notre Dame (2/27) and UNC vs. Maryland (2/29).
Each uniform is a
grey platinum base highlighted by the colors of each school. The key to this collection of uniforms is the weight, which is ultra-light and allows players optimal movements, especially late in the game.
The jerseys are 5% lighter than previous Nike Hyper Elite versions, the shorts feature laser perforations for breathability and the Nike Hyper Enforcer shoes offer a mixture of dependability and flexibility.
The beginning of the presentation was what I can best describe as "basketball performance art." I will go into it in greater detail later but this should give you the gist...
