Those awesome orange ones with the script type across the front to, for some reason, be worn with blue shorts?Well, the Orange is wearing them against Boston College on Wednesday, and Nike provided a detailed look at them on Monday.Honor the past. Dominate the future. The Nike Hyper Elite Dominance Uniforms. On court this February. pic.twitter.com/004upHoWRw— Nike Basketball (@nikebasketball) January 30, 2014 AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe cursive script, as Nike’s release notes, debuted in 1984 — the same year that Dwayne “Pearl” Washington made his debut for SU. This year marks the 30th anniversary of those jerseys.All in all, those tops are worlds better than those grey ones with the names below the numbers that Syracuse wore a few years back. The shorts are a different story though.The overall design is nice and “at Nike, it’s the small design details that matter.” The block “S” is a nice touch, too. But blue bottoms with orange tops?Not sure about that, although Nike’s reasoning is interesting.The contrasting jersey-short colors are bold, yet strategic; a symbolic tribute to Syracuse’s 1918 team that was top in the country. That memorable team wore dark jerseys and light shorts while becoming the Helms Athletic Foundation national champion.center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img
