Okay, that isn’t completely true; four players from yesterday’s game still wore Converse. Two of them logged significant minutes with Jeremy Evans and Orlando Mendez-Valdez. Did Converse drop the ball and not get them some new shoes in time for the tournament? Did some of the players loose their shoes and Nike stepped in quickly with some Zoom BB 2’s? Did WKU just decide to change after wearing Converse the whole season? Whatever the reason, what should have been a really exciting run to the sweet sixteen for Converse has turned into one of the biggest question marks of the whole tournament. I’ve never seen a team switch brands of shoes from the regular season to the tournament. I emailed someone with the basketball team for some clarification, but I have not heard back from them.
I am not trying to throw WKU under the bus here, I am just frusterated and decided to rant about it here. I am still rooting for them, there is no question about that. I sure would like to see them take the floor next game in some of the new Team Wade's that Marquette was wearing. Anyway, hopefully I can find out some more information between now and then. Below are pictures of Jeremy Evans followed by Orlando Mendez-Valdez wearing Converse from yesterday's game.
