New-look men's team has uniforms to match

TRACKING THE TERPS

The Kickoff

November 14, 2007|By MILTON KENT

Perhaps you've noticed that the Maryland men's basketball team looks different this season (beyond the many freshmen on the roster).

For the first time in 11 seasons, the Terps are sporting new uniforms, courtesy of Nike, as a part of its ELITE program and its System of Dress campaign.

According to the school, the tops are lighter and form-fitting, while the shorts are longer and loose-fitting. There's red piping down the sides, and the tops more closely resemble muscle shirts than the usual athletic tops that the Terps wore last season. Also, the Maryland logo and state flag have been moved from the left hip to the right and appear in a red panel.

Perhaps the newness of the uniforms explains why Bambale Osby couldn't make a free throw down the stretch against Hampton on Monday night. Who knows?
