New gear for Oakland going into tourney

The new black and gold Nikes you'll see on the feet of Oakland's players Friday in the NCAA tournament are not an illusion: the company sent the team new shoes specifically for the Big Dance. The Grizzlies broke in the shoes at Friday's practice. You can see the shoes in the video below. In my opinion, they're going to look a lot nicer than the old shoes, which work more with home white uniforms than the road black the Grizzlies are going to wear in the tournament, even if they advance.

UPDATE: Nike sponsors 55 of the teams in the 68-team NCAA tournament field.
