19nine’s Legacy Collection dives inside the archives to bring back some college basketball classics. Like the originals, we crafted each Legacy pair of retro shorts with the materials and details to honor the original designs. It was a labor of love in our pursuit to provide an era specific keepsake that celebrates the most iconic styles in college basketball history.
Led by star forward Billy Owens Syracuse entered the 1990-1991 season ranked inside the Top 15. Jim Boeheim's squad didn't disappoint, going 12-4 in the BIG EAST, winning the conference regular season title and climbing all the way to #3 in the polls.
The Orange entered the NCAA Tournament as the #2 seed in the East Region where they would be upset by #15 seed Richmond.
Owens was named BIG EAST Player of the Year and a consensus All American after averaging 23 points and 12 rebounds a game.
