A new year, a new look for Thad Matta's Ohio State basketball team.
Media Day kicks off Thursday afternoon. Ahead of it, the program released a look at its new jerseys which "feature high performance lightweight material and the same body cut as worn by the Olympic team in Rio de Janeiro."
As for the change from last year's jersey, this is the same uniform style just a different template. The team wore this template last year against Nebraska.
Here's Thad Matta debuting the look:
