The Boston College men's basketball team will wear special throwback uniforms for its Wednesday night home tilt against #OrangeEagle rival Syracuse (7 p.m. inside Conte Forum). The uniforms are similar to the ones the program wore in the mid-1970s (think: Bob Carrington).
The team slowly unveiled the aspects of the uniform one-by-one on Instagram, with ghost Patrick Heckmann serving as the team's model. (Follow @bchoopnews).
First up, the shoes and socks. White and gray sneakers. Gray socks with maroon and gold striping.
Next up, the shorts -- also gray, with maroon and gold striping.
Finally, the tops. Gray tops, maroon trim, block numbers and the old-school cursive Boston College script, which is actually pretty cool (death to italics).
Overall, a pretty clean and fresh design. A bit nitpicky, but I would have liked to see the program go with a white or even a cream base, shying away from what feels like gray-for-gray's sake. Besides, it's virtually impossible to out-gray/Platinum Syracuse. Know your opponent, guys.
