Photo: Syracuse Basketball Unveils New Home Jersey For 2015-16

One simple way to improve any Syracuse uniform? Add more orange. That is exactly what SU men's basketball has done this year. Orange star Michael Gbinije debuted the new white home uniforms at today's team photoshoot. The design is not radically different from what Syracuse has been wearing, but the numbers are now orange, instead of gray. The font on the front also looks to be a bit different, and the collar is now all white, where it was orange last season.

Here is what the previous uniform looked like.

The Orange also had a home alternate last season, with white lettering.

We think these new home uniforms will be very popular. The gray numbers were never well received by most Syracuse fans. The Orange are set to kick off the season with an exhibition against Le Moyne on November 2. The first regular season game comes against Lehigh on November 13 at the Carrier Dome.
