Bobby Hurley and Gerry Blakes are in San Francisco Thursday for the annual Pac-12 Basketball Media Day, the kickoff to the college basketball season. Hurley and Blakes - along with the other 11 Pac-12 programs - will preview the upcoming season as preseason practices continue.

Below are some notes, polls as well as the Pac-12 Basketball Media Day Live stream.

New Uniform

Part of the media day festivities are photo shoots with athletes and coaches. The ASU basketball team used this spotlight to unveil an alternate basketball jersey.

This marks the return of a gold jersey for the men's basketball team. The women's team has worn a gold jersey the past few years, however the men's squad has stayed mainly with maroon, white and black. It is unclear whether when and how often ASU will wear the new (and spiffy if I may add) jersey.

Preseason Polls

The Pac-12 Preseason Media Poll was released early Thursday morning. The Pac-12 media picked the Sun Devils eighth, coming in front of Stanford (9), USC (10), Washington (11) and Washington State (12). Arizona, Cal, Utah and Oregon were picked as the elite of the conference.

The first USA Today Coaches Poll was also released Thursday. To nobody's surprise, the Sun Devils did not receive any votes in their preseason top-25.

You can see the whole poll below.
