We’re just one month away from March Madness, so naturally, the apparel manufacturers are starting to debut new uniforms for the top college basketball teams. Nike unveiled eight new uniforms Friday – six for men’s teams, two for women’s teams.
The men’s squads for Kentucky, Duke, Syracuse, Florida, Arizona and Oregon got new Nike Hyper Elite’s for the stretch run. UConn and Baylor’s women’s teams were were also part of the release. A number of teams, including the Blue Devils, will debut them this weekend. From Nike:
Each school’s home uniform will feature a white base with school-specific color lettering and a 26-degree speed graphic of an iconic symbol of each school across the side of the game short. The 26-degree angle of each school’s graphic was inspired by the chevron on the classic Nike Windrunner track jacket that debuted in 1978. Each graphic represents a distinctive basketball point of view, based on the roughly 1,000 directional changes, or “cuts” that a player might make in the course of a game.
Here are some shots of the new digs.
