As a way of honoring the late, great Jim Valvano, Adidas is providing NC State with throw back uniforms to wear during the Jimmy V Classic which is held each year in Madison Square Garden. The year the tournament’s four teams are NC State, Connecticut, Texas and Georgetown and at the end of “V Week” there is money raised for cancer research.
Jim Valvano’s signature phrase of “Don’t Ever Give Up” will be on the back of the uniforms in place of names. You can see where the phrase comes from and his entire speech from the ESPY’s in 1993 above. Below, you will find the uniforms that will be worn. What do you guys think? These are my early choice for best alternate college basketball uniforms.
