How many years has Fred Van Vleet been on Wichita State? Like 7?! (I know, just 4, seems like forever though)

What's with Kent State using what looks to be 4 different templates/designs? Really dislike when schools do that.

Kent State Golden Flashes

What I do not understand is why is Kent State has names on the back (NOB) in the regular home white and road navy, as well as their alternate gray. But no name on back (NNOB) on their gold jersey? IMO, that is annoying. NCAA needs to mandate a rule that all Division I schools either have NOB on both home and away (and alternate except maybe a throwback) jerseys or they don't. I just hope UA forgot to add NOB on their gold jersey, if they don't than it's not a very bright move on both UA and Kent State's part.

Refers back to the Dave Odom era at Wake Forest and later South Carolina. In which he put NOB on the away jerseys but NNOB on the home jerseys, I never understood why he ever did that.

Almost as annoying as using 4 different templates.

He's been the heart & soul of that team whenever the going gets tough for them, so as a neutral I'll miss him when he graduates. He could do with less geometric hair though.

Based on Duke's social media posts and photos from ACC Operation Basketball, it appears Duke has its new white, blue and black jerseys plus the white Disruption jerseys used in the NCAA run last year along with the never-used Blue versions, all in the regular rotation.

Odd that Duke is using two sets of white and blue jerseys (though Duke did that last year), let along two home and road sets that are very similar (especially the blue). Additionally, when the Duke parents were introduced at the Blue-White game nearly two weeks ago, they were all wearing their sons blue Disruption jerseys.

In addition to these 5 jerseys, we know that Nike will create its annual January/February special jersey. We also don't know the status of the fauxbacks and it appears that Duke's old standard jerseys are no longer in use.

Duke women also have brand new white blue and black jerseys built on the women's version of the Disruption template (the men's are a hybrid of the Dispruption and prior template). Like the men and the football team, Duke now has a consistent look of white jerseys with blue trim, letters and numbers; blue jerseys with white trim and numbers and black jerseys with white letters and numbers and blue trim. Black only exists on the men's and women's white and blue basketball jerseys as an outline around the letters and numbers.

You know what I haven't heard lately? Colleges coming up with crazy courts... has anyone have any knowledge of a school coming up with one starting this season, because that's kind of a low down dirty love that I have... I like the imagination and all.

Apparently that's their thing now. They did that the last few years with Nike too. I don't mind alternates being different but home and away should be similar.

Really disappointed with these....

These are bad, but still better than their football uniforms.

I was just browsing Fanatics and saw the shorts and had to come here to see if they had been released yet. I hoped they made more sense with the new jersey than by themselves, but turns out they don't at all. I will admit I'm biased but I thought UW had a great look the last 6 years or so and can't say I'm a fan of this "upgrade." I agree I think they were going for a giant W in the shorts but the execution is terrible at best. The good news is that I won't have to buy any of these monstrosities as I live outside of the office in UW basketball shorts, so thanks for the extra income Nike!

Not sure if these got posted, but a couple of Adidas schools are getting "Iced Out" hoops unis...they "light up" when hit w/ camera flashes.

If this actually works (I'm sure it won't) wouldn't this create an unfair advantage? If it's a home game, the student section could blind the opposing team with their cell phones

Watching the Colorado-Iowa State game on ESPN2 right now. They're apparently playing at Sanford's Heritage Court, which I gotta say is sexy. Does it always look like this?

That right there is Adidas ingenuity...put the different scripts and numerals on the same sleeveless jersey, and have sleeves on the other. Who needs originality when you can be flashy?!

They run with templates every year. I'd have to see those live to see if they're worth the hype.
