The fonts aren't close, really. One look at the U and S confirms that in addition to the overall obvious difference in design.

It is styled similarly, but that's not the same thing as font. OSU uses a proprietary font called okSTATEu that OSU Marketing created.

FWIW, people around the net mentioned the similarity in their new court design when the first images were came out around September. The new court design was supposed to accompany new uniforms, but I believe Phoenix missed a deadline. Design intent is pretty clear though. Shame they are abandoning the purple a little bit. Loved the combo for them.

Okay so I guess I didn't really mean "exact" because it obviously isn't "exactly" the same, but it is pretty darn close. The slant, the blockiness, the shading. Just look at the hooks in the S. It is almost identical. And yes, I also know that an S on its own in our font doesn't have a hook (see below full spelling of Oklahoma State), but as it appears in the brand. Just saying, the similarities are glaring.

And no I'm not complaining. Just find it interesting. I think it's really neat that it reads the same from both sides of the court. Interested to see the new unis. I always am afraid because of some of the weird unis that come out these days.
