VCU unveils fresh jerseys to glowing reviews

VCU returns seven of its top nine players from last year's 26-win NCAA tournament team, but the Rams will still sport a new look next season.

They unveiled three slick new jerseys on Thursday: Home whites trimmed in gold, road blacks trimmed in grey and an alternate grey uniform trimmed in white and gold.

Almost everything about VCU's new look is well-conceived, from the clean lines, to the slightly revamped logo, to the color scheme. Maybe the only flaw is the lack of gold trim on the black road jerseys, a departure from the school's typical color scheme.

If VCU's jerseys look a tad familiar, that's because they're lacking in originality a bit. Atlantic 10 foe Dayton revealed a new look a few weeks ago with a strikingly similar jersey.
