Splash of color: WNBA ditches white uniforms for 20th season

NEW YORK (AP) The WNBA is celebrating its 20th season with new uniform colors for 10 of its 12 teams.

The league said Monday the uniforms will replace the traditional white jerseys at home and color jerseys on the road. San Antonio and Los Angeles will remain the same since both already feature all-color uniform designs.

The WNBA becomes one of the first American pro leagues to have no white jerseys. The teams won't have specific home and away uniforms.

New York, Phoenix and Los Angeles will wear a jersey patch to commemorate their presence in the league for all 20 years. Additionally, all 12 teams will have a special logo on the back neckline of their jerseys.
