College Basketball Switching to Spandex Jerseys?

While watching my daily dose of Pardon the Interruption, a topic came up that I hadn’t heard anything previously about.  Apparently, some mens’ college basketball teams are going to be experimenting with tight fitting, spandex tops.  I thought it had to be a joke, but they had pictures (which I cannot find) and everything to back it up.  I didn’t catch all of the names of teams who would be giving a shot, but they said that roughly seven will be giving the new uniforms a shot.  Syracuse was the one big name that I remember.

I just have one question.  WHY? 

There is absolutely no need for a uniform change in basketball.  If there is a good reason why they are doing this, I would love to hear it. 

I would mention something about women having to wear spandex tops as well, but I will save myself the ridicule. 

If anyone has more information about this, I am very interested in hearing it.
