UCLA to wear throwback uniforms honoring 1965 championship

Friday January 16th, 2015

UCLA basketball announced Friday that it will wear special throwback uniforms when it plays Colorado on Jan. 31. 

The uniforms are inspired by those the Bruins wore in 1965 when they won the national title, one of 10 national championships UCLA won in 12 seasons from 1964 to 1975.

DAVIS: Weekend picks: Duke-Louisville

UCLA will honor its 1964 and 1965 championship teams at halftime of the game.

From the school:

Blending the best of past and present, the uniform features the same lightweight Revolution 30 technology used in the NBA, while evoking a retro feel with the throwback letter, numbering and logos used in the 1965 jersey.

Adidas, which designed the uniforms, has previously unveiled throwback uniforms for Louisville and Michigan this season.
