St. John's is one of 8 teams to be outfitted in Nike's new Hyper Elite uniforms, supposedly 70% lighter than a traditional elite level uniform.
Whatever that means.
Some Nike copy from Red Storm Sports, explaining the unis:
Paying tribute to the rich history of St. John's basketball, Nike designers worked with the University to create a distinctive look for the Red Storm. Inspired in part by Hall of Fame coach Lou Carnesecca, the St. John's jerseys feature a Chevron design to represent Carnesecca's "lucky" sweater. Elements of the iconic ceiling of Madison Square Garden, where Carenesecca coached some of the programs most memorable games, are also included in the design.
In addition, five stripes honor the "Wonder Five" who helped lead the program to prominence. Clouds and lightning reference St. John's nickname, "Red Storm," and the University's seal and its year of establishment, 1870, help complete the design.
