This past year, St. Bonaventure University celebrated the 100th season of its men's basketball program with a variety of events throughout the season.
As with any sports team that has been around for years, the St. Bonaventure University basketball program has featured a number of different logos and uniform styles over the decades. A fun source of debate for Bona basketball fans has been to discuss which jersey style over the years was the best. Now, fans have an opportunity to vote for their favorites - and learn a bit more about some they may have never seen before.
We have selected 20 iconic jersey styles from throughout the years and put them into a bracket for fan voting to decide the favorite jersey of all-time.
Voting will be held through the team's Twitter account (@BonniesMBB) beginning with a "play-in" round to get into the full "Sweet 16" bracket.

SBU switched to a fully spelled out "Saint" Bonaventure in 1994-95, winning 18 games including a home NIT victory.
