There are perks to being a Nike Elite
#Brand Zombie School. Most notably, new uniforms on a pretty consistent basis. For the end of last season, Syracuse was one of the schools that got to wear the Nike Hyper Elite line. While the Orange didn't play in the postseason, we did wear them for our final two games of the season.
Now it looks like other Nike schools debuted new jerseys, Syracuse has their turn.
We saw Michael Gbinije debut the home tops last month.

Now we get to see the road options.
We'll be in #CuseMode in these new road uniforms! What do you think #OrangeNation? #uniswag pic.twitter.com/Vxgwo8Zdvu— Syracuse Basketball (@Cuse_MBB) October 16, 2015
Much like the Hyper Elites, the jersey front is a lot simpler than in years past, but the numbers are outlined making them stand out. There's also that sublimated design on the back that's supposed to look like the Hall of Languages, but it's moved lower than in older designs. You can purchase replica jerseys of both options online.
If you're like me and you prefer to drop your hard earned dollar on long sleeve shooting shirts, this year's design dropped on Fanatics this past week:
Syracuse should debut these jerseys and shirts at Orange Madness tonight.
