Gray alternate uniforms are definitely in for Illinois this year. The football team scored one of its biggest wins of the season, knocking off Minnesota while wearing special "Gray Ghost" uniforms. Tonight, the Illini basketball team will also be in gray, when it faces off against Villanova at Madison Square Garden in the Jimmy V Classic.
We weren't sure on the Gray Ghost football threads, but this basketball jersey is a very strong look. The Illini and Wildcats tip off at 7 p.m. Eastern.
