WSU unveils new basketball unis


FROM PULLMAN -- We start today's links with an item we didn't get to last night: the unveiling of new uniforms for the men's basketball team. They have words on them. Read on.


The uniforms aren't a heck of a lot different, until you take a look at the back. Yes, that is the WSU fight song. An interesting touch. You can check out WSU's photo gallery of the new jerseys here.

Also of note: DaVonte Lacy has switched to No. 25.

WSU writes about the new uniforms: "This season the team will be wearing Nike Hyperelite Uniforms, which are made from a thinner and lighter material than previous uniforms. The laser-cut perforations increase ventilation and Dri-FIT fabric helps wick sweat away so every player is equipped to stay cool, dry, comfortable, and move better."

--- Our story in today's newspaper focuses on the significance of WSU's recent (if you can call them that) victories over USC. 

--- Here are some notes from practice last night.

--- writes that WSU wants to be more than just respectable.

--- USC might be getting its best pass rusher back this weekend.

Time to get on an airplane.
