Mid-Major College Basketball Jersey Gift Guide

If you are like me, you are ready for some college basketball. And if you are like me, you could care less about the Big East or the ACC or the SEC. I'm ready for some Big West, Missouri Valley or Mid-American Basketball. I care more about teams like Cal State Northridge and IUPUI and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi than I do Duke and Kansas. I even root for hardcore religious schools like Liberty and Sacred Heart during this time of the year. Sure I got accepted to Kansas and nearly went there, but seeing Oral Roberts knock them off early this season is gravy.

If you are like me, you love college basketball, you love the mid-majors and you love basketball jerseys. But where the heck do you get jerseys from some of these smaller schools? Sure, you can get a North Carolina jersey or a UCLA jersey at any mall in America, but if you want a Wisconsin-Milwaukee jersey, what are you going to do?

So I bring to you a gift guide of mid-major basketball jerseys available on the internet, just in time to do some Christmas shopping for yourself or that big basketball nerd on your list. Sadly, it's a pretty short list. Not enough teams have their jerseys for sale on the web if you ask me. If anyone knows of other websites offering mid-major or Division II or Division III or even NAIA basketball jerseys, please drop me an email.
