Syracuse Basketball: Orange to wear camouflage jerseys for season opener

Harry How

Syracuse's men's basketball program learned Tuesday it will wear camouflage jerseys for its season opener against San Diego State, and freshman guard Trevor Cooney will miss 7-10 days after undergoing a tonsillectomy.

After enduring Jerseygate last season, the fans of the Syracuse Orange men's basketball program will see a uniform change they actually might like. According to ESPN's Andy Katz, Syracuse will wear camouflage jerseys during its military-themed season opener that will be played on the deck of the U.S.S. Midway against the San Diego St. Aztecs, Nov. 9.

The uniforms should look similar to the ones the Michigan St. Spartans wore (pictured above) last season during the Carrier Classic against the North Carolina Tar Heels.

The Orange and Aztecs are two of eight schools -- Michigan State, Florida Gators, Georgetown Hoyas, Connecticut Huskies, Ohio St. Buckeyes and Marquette Golden Eagles are the others -- that will wear camouflage jerseys for their season openers.

Quick note: The Orange also learned Tuesday redshirt freshman shooting guard Trevor Cooney will miss a week of action after undergoing a tonsillectomy, the The Post-Standard's Mike Waters is reporting.

Cooney, who's expected to be SU's backup shooting guard, should only miss the Orange's first exhibition game against Pace University, Nov. 1. He should be ready to go by the season opener against San Diego St.
