WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The Dub is a popular term students use to reference UNCW. Now the UNCW men's basketball team is wearing it across their chests.
"Let's do something that the students may like. That is when we came up with the dub." said head coach Buzz Peterson about the decision to put the dub on the new gold uniforms.
The new look hasn't been very popular with season ticket holders. "We have got several letters that people don't like it" said Peterson.
On campus the students have given the uniforms a mixed review. "I really like those jerseys they look the best I think." said UNCW Junior Sia Spirova.
UNCW Student Kyle Caddell hasn't jumped on the bandwagon. "It's not my favorite thing. Putting the gold with the Dub is just a double negative to me. If it's something the students like and the players enjoy, I think they should continue".
The Seahawks are 2-0 in the gold uniforms, picking up wins over UNC-Asheville and Hampton. Moving forward the team plans to wear the special uniforms for special occasions.
