However, last night Marquette held their first open scrimmage in preparation for some games in Canada. While the practice jerseys still say Nike, the shoes say Converse. Team Wade 1.3 to be exact.
You can find more pictures by going to Muscoop.com From my source they will be wearing Converse branded Jerseys along with the shoes. This has been a rumor for a long time, and in fact was part of the reason why I started the petition/blog. Once pictures of the event started to surface I figured I would go ahead and let the cat out of the bag. Nothing has officially been announced yet, but I would expect some kind of press event with Dwyane back at Marquette. So for it's 100th year Converse will return the NCAA, and I couldn't be more thrilled.
Converse is just a bastard of Nike now anyway, thus explaining why Marquette can wear a jersey of one and a shoe of the other.
With Converse being owned by Nike is Converse really even that unique anymore anyway?
