Friday, an email went out from Manny's promoting new Nike Hyper Elite basketball uniforms for the Syracuse Orange. That's curious timing considering the Orange host the Duke Blue Devils in the Carrier Dome today. Seems like the perfect time to debut something like that...
Still, no word yet on whether or not SU will wear the uniforms today, or some other time soon.
As you might remember, the Hyper Elite uniforms feature a lot of fancy-sounding Nike stuff. The jerseys are 5 percent lighter than previous uniforms and the shorts feature laser perforations for breathability.
These uniforms don't really look at that different than Syracuse's normal uniforms, which, is fine. The only big different is the color of the name and lettering as well as the patters on the sides of the shorts. Nice to see someone finally took the hint, even if they just had to make sure there's still some platinum in there.
