Nike has been preparing to shake things up again when it comes to college basketball uniforms, and this afternoon we just got a peak at what the company has up its sleeves. Nike has been working on new ‘Hyper Elite Dominance’ uniforms for a number of schools — Michigan State, Kentucky, Ohio State, Duke, Syracuse, North Carolina, and Oregon — and man do they look good.
Here’s a photo of the uniforms, via Nike PR director Heidi Burgett:

Here is some background on the uniforms from Nike, including dates for when they will be worn:
All seven uniforms honor each school’s winning tradition with special logos, scripts and colors mined from each program’s past.
The uniforms will make their debut on-court beginning in early February. Dates include Michigan State vs. Georgetown (2/1), Ohio State vs. Michigan (2/11), Duke vs. Maryland (2/15), Kentucky vs. Florida (2/15), Syracuse vs. Boston College (2/19), UNC vs. Wake Forest (2/22) and Oregon vs. Washington State (2/23).
The details will be revealed before each game with special stories on NikeInc.com and the uniforms will be available for fans in March at Nike.com.
We showed you a look at the Ohio State uniforms earlier today, but this whole line is quite spectacular. There’s a mix of throwback script looks, oversized logos on the bottoms, cool colors, and of course, flashy Oregon Ducks wings on their shorts. We can’t wait to get a look at some of the close-ups — we’ll keep you posted.
