What teams have alternate/third jerseys

Recommended Posts

I'm surprised that Syracuse doesn't wear a blue basketball jersey. The football team has occasionally worn orange; why not the basketball team blue?

Can anyone else think of a school where the basketball team wears one color and the football team another? Thinking about it, it's kind of weird that Syracuse is the way it is.

I seem to recall the last time Syracuse wore a blue jersey was against Kentucky in the late 80s early 90s. They were crushed and I think they vowed never to wear blue again.

What's up.

I am trying to find out all of the teams that have an alternate in college basketball.

Here is what i know of so far...

Arizona

California

Miami

Duke

Illinois

Iowa

Michigan

Michigan St.

Gonzaga

Maryland (has not been worn yet)

Virginia

Washington

If anyone has the full list or any others, add it to the list please.

I could be wrong, but I don't think that Michigan State has worn an alt this year. The past few years they have had a light silver alt but I don't recall seeing any silver this year. There was some talk of MSU going with a throwback for the Mateen Cleaves' jersey retirement but they didn't do that either.

This might not add anything to the discussion, but Boston College's gold alternates are effin' fantastic.

UNC wore some Jordan-era throwbacks in a turn back the clock game against Virginia a couple years ago, who were also donned in retro garb.

Washington has a gold alt to go along with its standard white and purple. They wear it for home white and for away colors.

Also I know last year WSU had a grey alt to go along with their normal crimson and white, but I dont think I've seen it with this years set.

Husky alts:

Technically the cougs had white alts last year and home grays. Of course, since Russell is a joke and can't give our basketball team a consistent design, we only have the 2 brand new uniforms this year (home whites, road crimsons).

Yea Ohio State has been wearing their Gray unis a lot lately. They might even be their primary Home jerseys by now.

heh, Oklahoma State, for one (the football team wears mainly orange, basketball wears mainly black). You used to be able to say Miami (football-primarily orange, basketball-mainly green), but Canes football wears the greens about as much as they wear orange nowadays. Then, Illinois...football traditionally wears navy jerseys, while basketball prefers orange. I'm sure there's more.

Kansas has red Alts on the way from Adidas, there is one hanging in the Hall of Fame at Allen Fieldhouse and it looks amazing. I wish I could upload the picture I took but it's on my phone.

Kansas actually has worn their third jersey this season versus Tennessee State. They brought them back a few years ago after Bill Self was hired and while they were still with Nike. They didn't wear them last year and just once this year. I wish they would've wore them at Colorado on Valentine's Day, that'd been pretty cool and would've fit in with all the NBA teams wearing red. Here are some pics from this year.

I love those Kansas reds. My favorite alternate jersey by far. And perhaps my favorite jersey in the Nation, period.

Good point about Miami. Do they even have an orange basketball jersey? I only know of the green and terrible black alts. Illinois, yeah, they do wear orange, but I feel like I see them in blue just as often. And OK State has orange basketball jerseys though, don't they?

I guess it's just surprising altogether SU doesn't even have a blue option. I think we can all agree it would look great. However, what I would rather see (and I know I'm not alone) is a return to these beauties:

(I would really appreciate if someone could find a better pic. I'm at a loss.)

Oregon (green, yellow, white) got mentioned awhile back. Oregon State has gone with orange, black, and white for several years.

I wanted to list this comment under Discrimihater's, because of the reference to OK State. It's funny that two of the three OSU's, Oklahoma's and Oregon's, have the same colors. For a long time, however, Oregon State had the reverse color situation. When the basketball team was ranked in the top 5, under Ralph Miller in the early '80s, they wore orange, while the football team wore black.

heh, don't get me started on Oregon...I'm one of the few that loves the diamondplate jerseys, but I have absolutely no idea if the football team even really HAS a main home jersey right now :D

heh, if this was 96, I coulda said Northwestern (football was in its Barnett-induced black phase, basketball still mainly wore purple).

shoot, bump it up to around 99 or so and change the other sport from hoops to volleyball, I coulda said Wisconsin...the Badgers are known for wearing red, but I recall one year (the last year UW teams wore Reebok before switching to Adidas) the volleyball team wore black road jerseys instead of red. so sue me, I like watching volleyball every now and then.

just thought of one...anybody know whether UCF hoops wears black or gold roads? cus UCF football wears gold homes, they'd be another one if the basketball team stuck with mainly wearing black.
