N.C. State scraps new jerseys

After receiving negative feedback from fans, N.C. State has scrapped a new design for its men's basketball jerseys, athletics director Lee Fowler said Tuesday morning.

Last week, N.C. State displayed its new jersey design on its Twitter site, http://twitter.com/PackMensBball. The jersey featured a small "NC" on the front and a much larger "STATE" underneath.

Fowler said it was an attempt by coach Sidney Lowe and assistant Monte Towe to re-emphasize the "STATE," which was the only word on the jerseys during their playing days.

The response from fans on the Twitter site was overwhelmingly negative.

"The students didn't like it," Fowler said.

N.C. State instead will use jerseys similar to those from last season, Fowler said. The jerseys are provided by Adidas, which has an apparel deal with the school.
