Hey, remember last year's Nike Hyper Elite jerseys? Just in case you don't, let me remind you...
With fans crying foul over the Georgetown-gray jerseys, Jim Boeheim said, "This is going to be a one-game thing. That’s all. A one-game thing. We’re going to wear them once, and that’s it." He apparently stayed true to his word.
Nike released its list of schools participating in the Nike Hyper Elite jersey program for 2013 and the Syracuse Orange aren't on it.
The Gonzaga Bulldogs will debut their uniform on-court January 19. The other elite teams wearing these designs are:
Michigan State Spartans on 1/27, Baylor Lady Bears on 1/30, Villanova Wildcats on 1/30, Southern California Trojans on 1/30, Ohio State Buckeyes on 2/5, North Carolina Tar Heels on 2/9, Stanford Cardinal (Women) on 2/15, Georgetown Hoyas on 2/15, Kentucky Wildcats on 2/16, Duke Blue Devils on 2/16, Texas Longhorns on 2/16 and Connecticut Huskies (Women) on 3/4.
While many of the SU players might gripe, I don't expect to hear too many SU fans doing so.
