Best and worst of college basketball's gray jersey fad
Akron mentioned in the article above. I'm sure the jersey topic was covered a long time ago but this is a new article. Its always good to see Akron basketball talked about right along with Texas, Purdue, and other big time programs.
"When Akron had the opportunity to update its uniforms this past offseason, assistant coach Rick McFadden suggested breaking away from the school's traditional blue and gold color scheme and adding silver to the palette. Coach Keith Dambrot liked the idea, so this season the Zips have introduced home white jerseys with silver and blue trim and silver alternate jerseys with white and blue trim.
"It looked pretty good and there weren't that many teams that had them," Dambrot said. "Anything you can do at the mid-major level to stand out, it helps you. We're always looking for ways to recruit better players and take our program to the next level, so giving kids a little different type of uniform is another way to do it.""
