Update, 12:45 p.m.: Maryland’s athletic department released a statement saying the photos were only draft renderings, not the final product.
Via @umterps: “Renderings leaked of potential uniforms are drafts only. Our fans will know when Terps, UA launch Pride for basketball."
Original post: Testudo Times offered this image of what is said to be leaked renderings of the new Maryland basketball Pride uniforms. According to the blog, they come from a “source inside the athletic department” and the image is from from several months ago.
Maryland reps have not yet responded to our request for comment, so I can’t confirm that this is an accurate depiction. Paul Lukas from Uni Watch, who knows about such things, is calling it a “legit developmental rendering,” so there’s that.
Now that we have the disclaimers out of the way, I would be shocked if the final product didn’t look similar to what we’re looking at here. Earlier in the month, coach Mark Turgeon described the unseen uniforms as such:
“We’ll have a little bit of everything involved. I don’t think we’ll be quite as flashy as the football uniforms or lacrosse, but we will have Pride uniforms. A little bit more lower key, but everybody will know they’re our Pride uniforms.”
That sounds about right.
