Players react to new alternate jerseys
Two days after photos of the MSU men’s basketball team’s new alternate jerseys were leaked online, the Spartans got a chance to sound off on their new threads Thursday.
“Those cold,” senior center Derrick Nix said of the jerseys. “I feel like I’m about to play football. They look like football jerseys.”
The No. 13 Spartans (17-3 overall, 6-1 Big Ten) will wear the jerseys Sunday (1:00 p.m., CBS) when they travel to Bloomington, Ind. to square off against No. 7 Indiana (16-3, 5-1).
The uniform features special jerseys, shorts, and shoes, among other accessories, and sophomore guard/forward Branden Dawson said he expects to get a number of calls about the gear after the game.
“Jersey’s are nice, shoes are nice,” Dawson said. “After the game, I know a lot of family and friends are going to be asking for them.”
And if things go well, Nix said he hopes this won’t be the jerseys’ final appearance.
“I wish we could play in them against Michigan. I think that would be sweet,” Nix said.
“If we win (against Indiana), we’ll play in them against Michigan. I’ll make sure of that. If we lose, we’re probably just gonna throw them out.”
