Now you're just being argumentative for the sake of being argumentative..  Even on the photo you initially posted, the swoosh is clearly on the front left hip and the Longhorn logo is supposed to be on the backside of the split due to the cut of the shorts.

 

But it's weird for basketball shorts to feature the team's primary logo in the backside of the uniform. I know it's technically on the side, but as I look at it more all of the orange trim is on the side and back as well as the primary logo so yea, the pants do look a bit backwards design wise.

Dude, I'm not saying they're wearing the shorts themselves backwards.  (Maybe I should have made that clearer.)  It's that all the interesting stuff is on the back.

They’re not backwards, that’s just the design of the shorts. They’ve been that way for years, even before the template switch:

Huh, I never noticed that.  Thanks.

Duke finally wore its "standard" blue uniforms tonight against Georgia Tech.  This is the first time it has worn those uniforms since the pre-Vapor version in the 2016 ACC Quarterfinals against Notre Dame.  Duke wore it's "standard" white uniforms at home in the last few weeks against Pitt and Virginia.  Otherwise, Duke has worn the "fauxback" versions of the white and blue uniforms as its primary home and roads.  Duke also wore black, but only in its losses at BC and at N.C. State.  Other than the PK80 games, when it wore the PK80 uniforms, Duke hasn't broken out any other uniforms and we don't know if there are any others in the inventory such as the Disruption jerseys used the past few years or if there is a February one-off coming (Louisville is the only non-Nike opponent yet, which is usually when this gimmick appears).

Not sure what design you're referencing as "standard" vs. "fauxback" but Duke's has worn the same version of their white and their blue uniform for every game this year except the PK80. They ditched the black trim on both of those designs for this season.

That's not accurate. Duke wore their "fauxbacks" in Chapel Hill last Thursday, then wore their standard blues last night @ Georgia Tech. I think mstein is correct.

This is correct.  Duke has worn fauxback white (which are now treated at "primary") for every home game except for Pitt and UVA where it wore standard white.  Duke has worn fauxback blue ("primary" roads) for every neutral/road game (other than the 3 PK80 games) except: BC (black), N.C. State (black) and Georgia Tech (standard blue).  That photo of the standard blues is the pre-Vapor version from the one of the only two times before this weekend that jersey was worn: 2016 ACC Quarters v. ND (it was also worn in the 15-16 Blue-White game).  The current version is on the Vapor template.  Thanks for adding the photos.

There is also a picture in Slam magazine of Marvin Bagley III wearing a white disruption jersey, which makes me wonder if those are still in the rotation, though we haven't seen them since December 2016.  The weird thing about Duke using two sets of white and blue jerseys is that they just aren't that different.  U neck vs. V neck.  Trim on the neck and arm holes vs. no trim.  No black trim on letters and numbers vs. black outlining.  Stripe across the bottom of the shorts vs. no stripe.  And for those paying close attention, the fauxbacks have the white piping cross over the waistband, while the "standard jerseys" do not have the white piping on the waistband itself which instead uses Nike's newer ventilated waistband.  (I think it is called VaporFlex or some nonsense like that - notice that the only NBA jerseys with the new waistbands are those where there is no pattern running over the waistband).  You can only see the newer waistband clearly on the black jerseys above. All 5 jerseys are the same as what was introduced last year, but Duke never wore the blue standard jerseys and started wearing fauxbacks about a month into the season.

Kansas is wearing 2008 throwbacks against West Virginia today, and those uniforms still look fantastic (other than the jersey collars, which Adidas has made even worse with their typical gimmicks).
