Under Armour reveals new highly patterned hoops uniforms
Using a new mesh fabric as the template, Under Armour has released a slate of uniforms for seven NCAA basketball teams.
The new looks each take cues from specific traditions at each school and will be worn in “conference rivalries and big match-ups,” a company spokesperson tells SI.com.
The new South Carolina uniform includes a camouflage-patterned short featuring Palmetto trees. Crescent moons get play on the short and bottom hem of the jersey, which also includes the school motto “Carolina Forever to Thee” inside the jersey collar.
Northwestern’s uniform has “Pound the Rock” on the jersey hem and Evanston campus architecture fades serve as the pattern for the shorts. In more architecture-inspired design, Seton Hall’s Immaculate Conception Chapel helps flourish the striping around the Pirate logo on Seton Hall’s new look.
St. John’s has a Queens-inspired pattern covering the shorts and bottom hem of the jersey while the Maryland uniform includes an oversized state flag pattern on the shorts and bottom hem of the jersey. A 2002 National Championship star sits on the back of the neck, while the “Fear the Turtle” school motto goes inside the collar.
