Penn State Basketball Unveils New Uniforms and Website

The Penn State Basketball team has stepped up its flair for the dramatic in anticipation for their upcoming season.

Yesterday afternoon, the team unveiled its new website and new uniforms over social media. Before entering the site, a minute long video introducing the new jerseys plays against dramatic music and cinematography. The jerseys’ themselves are a slicker, lighter version of the previous Nike jerseys Penn State has donned in the past. A decal of the Nittany Lion logo is thinly outlined on the rear of the jersey.

It was announced in the summer that the team would be receiving new Nike Aerographic uniforms this season, similar to those worn by schools like North Carolina, Duke, Kentucky, and Michigan State.

Once inside the site, a track aptly titled “Epic Violin Hip Hop” greets visitors along with a video narrated by head coach Patrick Chambers previewing the upcoming season. Like the new jerseys, the site is more aesthetically pleasing than its predecessors. The new website is part of larger mission of the basketball program to improve its social media presence. Earlier this month the team posted on its Facebook page that “#WeAre … stepping up our Instagram game,” and in recent days have been posting teaser videos in preparation for the jersey reveal.

In all, there is much anticipation for the upcoming basketball season. Tim Frazier is healthy, a game at Rec Hall is scheduled, and the team looks to build off a disappointing 2012-13 campaign. The team will hold a Blue vs. White scrimmage at the BJC on Saturday at 10 a.m.
