Orange To Wear Retro Jerseys
Nike unveiled retro jerseys today for seven college basketball teams. Syracuse was one of those teams. The Orange will wear their rendition of the retro jersey on Wednesday, February 19th vs. Boston College at the Carrier Dome. Tip off is at 7:00pm.
The last time the Orange wore retro jerseys was February 22, 2012 against the South Florida Bulls. Syracuse defeated USF 56-48 at the Carrier Dome, improving to 28-1 on the year.
Normally, I'm not a huge fan of change, especially with uniforms. However, these throw-backs are sweet. They have gotten a great reaction on twitter, and I think everyone will enjoy them (if Syracuse wins). After the Boston College game, SU will go back to their traditional home and away jerseys.
