Nike Sportswear has generously blessed six basketball programs and their fans with a limited edition set of apparel so that fans can be “styling and profiling” for the NCAA Tournament. Syracuse, Michigan State, Kentucky, Duke, Connecticut and Florida will all be hoping to cut down the nets on April 2nd in New Orleans, but first, they must navigate their regions and escape with their proverbial lives. Having dope gear and kicks to rock in the process can’t hurt, right?
The Nike Sportswear collection includes Destoyer jackets, AW77 hoodies, crewneck sweatshirts, t-shirts, hats and shoes. Product can be purchased at nikestore.com, and select retailers, including House of Hoops. Would my fandom be compromised if I asked for one of those jackets? Well…I wouldn’t want the Duke Blue Devils one. How’s that?
