The Technician is reporting that the new basketball jerseys that were unvailed last week will be scrapped. After the picture of the new look hit the internet, fans and students flooded message boards and email accounts voicing their dislike.
“We were looking for a positive outcome, but since this didn’t turn out that way, we’re more than willing to go back to the old way and move forward,” Athletic Director Lee Fowler said.
The jerseys were designed to bring "State" to the forefront, without taking out the "NC." Although some players reportedly like the new jersey, the decision was made to go back to a design similar to last year's.
“We certainly want our students and fans to come out and be supportive of our team, and we definitely don’t want that to be the reason that they don’t,” Head Coach Sidney Lowe said.
