Michigan Basketball Unveils New Nike Jumpman Jerseys

Michigan basketball unveiled its new Nike Jumpman jerseys Friday with a huge, public spectacle.

Michigan basketball joined the unique company of Marquette, Georgetown and North Carolina Friday when it unveiled its Nike Jumpman uniforms for the 2016-2017 season. The Wolverines are now one of only four teams to have the Jordan Jumpman emblazoned on their uniforms.

Michigan, previously an Adidas-sponsored school, inked the 15-year, $173 million deal with Nike all the way back in July 2015.

The new uniforms appeared to leak early Friday afternoon ahead of their official unveiling:

"I love 'em," Michigan senior wing Zak Irvin told the Detroit Free Press, "I think they're a lot nicer than last year's uniforms when people had a lot of questions about how our shorts looked but they're light and they fit really well."

The Wolverines open their season November 11 with a home matchup against Howard.
