In April 2012 it was announced that LMU athletics had signed a contract with Nike. Nike is one of the most dominate and popular brands in athletic apparel, and it is a huge benefit for our athletes to be able to wear Nike products. The design and quality of Nike product is some of the best in the world.
Yesterday as there was a confirmation on the athletics website that the basketball program would be a part of the Jordan Brand. There are only four other schools that I know of that are part of the Jordan brand: California, Marquette, Georgetown and North Carolina. For our basketball team to wear the same gear and uniforms as these historic programs is pretty remarkable.
It remains to be announced if LMU Jordan apparel will be available for purchase to the general public. An article on the athletics site also mentioned that Nike’s Jordan Brand – Rise Above Truck will make an appearance at Midnight Madness on Friday.
