Mark Selig of the Daily News-Record provided us the first glimpse of gold uniforms that the James Madison men’s basketball team will wear this season. Selig said that it would likely start with a “Gold Out” for the home opener on Nov. 28 against George Washington.
Spelled out on the all-gold background is “Dukes” in white script, outlined by the purple in JMU’s color scheme. Each player’s number receives the same treatment.
While nothing is wrong with the team’s white jersey with a purple “JMU” scrawled across a white top, the gold uniform is great looking, unique and old school. Only Washington can claim anything similar.
We’ll be rooting for the Dukes to reach the NCAA tournament just to see these beauties on TV in March. Grade: A
