ASU hoops shows off black alternate uniforms ahead of new season
The return of Arizona State men’s basketball on Wednesday brings with it a fresh look on the court.
Prior to the Sun Devils taking on Rhode Island for the start of the 2K Empire Classic, the school revealed a new jersey.
The jerseys shown off by senior guard Remy Martin and freshman wing Josh Christopher feature maroon and gold accents on both the jersey and the shorts, a similar meshing of colors to the Phoenix Suns’ new alternates.
The black jerseys display gold numbers with a pitchfork logo on the front, as well as gold Adidas and Pac-12 logos.
ASU begins its 2020-21 season ranked No. 18 in the country, led by the preseason All-American Martin. Christopher highlights the Sun Devils’ best-ever recruiting class, joined by fellow top-100 recruit and four-star signing Marcus Bagley.
The Sun Devils will play either Villanova or Boston College on Thanksgiving to wrap up the two-day event. They were originally scheduled to play No. 2 Baylor before the Bears’ head coach Scott Drew tested positive for COVID-19.
