We’re just a month away from the start of the college basketball season and these new Kentucky uniforms are just what we need to hold us over until then.
It’s been some time since we’ve seen new Kentucky uniforms and now they’re here. The new uni was released via the University of Kentucky equipment staff Twitter page:

As a reference here are some photos of what the Kentucky Wildcats wore last year:
Checkerboard, checkerboard, and more checkerboard.
The new uniforms feature checkerboard running the entire length of the side of the jersey, rather than just the half-short checkerboard donned on the previous uniform.
The jersey also features a blue collar rather than the white collar on the 2014 uniform. Aside from more checkerboard on the shorts, Kentucky also added their UK logo to the left pant leg.
Kentucky kicks off the season on October 14 in Rupp Arena for Big Blue Madness, their first practice of the year. The Wildcats’ first game is on Nov. 11 against Stephen F. Austin.
