\ What do you think of the new uniforms?\

\ I am not Mr. Blackwell and not prone to providing more than a tepid answer on fashion matters. The new look has some piping down the back side of the jersey and onto the shorts. It’s from the same line of uniforms that Nike unveiled with Syracuse and Ohio State late last season.\

\ Others were more willing to share some insight on the subject.\

\ “I love them,” coach Gary Williams said. “I think they’re good. People would recognize them from last year. They’re a little more modern look. They have a different cut. I know the players like them. The way you can tell is that if they don’t complain, they must be good.”\

\ As for which teams get the new looks, Gary said Nike offered them to all of the schools it has deals with that have reached the Final Four in the last 10 years. That is the so-called Elite group; you might remember that name from the all-star teams that came into college arenas as exhibition fodder before the NCAA put the kibosh on playing non-collegiate teams.\

\ Thus endeth the obligatory discussion of the basketball team’s new clothes.\
