GW Men's Basketball to Don Special D.C.-Inspired Uniforms vs. VCU
Iconic Imagery on Jerseys to Punctuate #MonumentalHomeCourtAdvantage
Jan. 13, 2014
WASHINGTON - In its first season competing on the new floor at the Charles E. Smith Center, GW's men's basketball has surged to an 8-0 home record in 2013-14. Coupled with the GW women's basketball team, GW hoops is 18-1 at home with the images of The White House flanked by the United States Capitol and the Washington Monument on its floor.
On Tuesday, George Washington will wear the #MonumentalHomeCourtAdvantage on its jerseys, in gray Nike uniforms that will replace the familiar Buff and Blue for the clash with VCU.
The distinctive design pays tribute to three iconic structures that are near and dear to the GW community. Every four years George Washington students celebrate the Presidential Inauguration just blocks away from campus, while dozens of university graduates have led long and prestigious careers in the halls of the U.S. Capitol. The Washington Monument, the most prominent structure in Washington, D.C., is dedicated to the honor of the first President of the United States and the university's namesake.
A hallmark of George Washington's Athletics program has long been success through the recruitment of both local and international talent. The National Mall and the buildings depicted on the new uniforms blend the best of Washington with the international appeal of the most powerful city in the World.
