Michigan unveils new uniforms at photo shoot

1 Comment

Thursday the Michigan basketball team took part in a photo shoot in preparation for the upcoming season, and that presented the opportunity for the Wolverines to show off their new maize uniforms. While the uniform tops look simple enough, the shorts have an interesting pattern on them that elicited quite the reaction on social media.

Below is a photo of senior guards Spike Albrecht and Caris LeVert in the new jerseys.

For those who aren’t all too thrilled with Michigan’s new uniforms, this will be their final season with manufacturer adidas. During the summer the athletic department inked a deal with Jordan Brand that goes into effect next July, meaning that the “Jumpman” logo will be a fixture in Ann Arbor for years to come.

Western Kentucky asks fans for input on alternate jersey design

In recent years some college basketball programs, most notably Memphis, have allowed fans to vote on various court designs with the school going with the design that receives the most votes. In regards to its options for an alternate jersey Western Kentucky is using a similar approach, with the school giving fans three options from which to choose.

The primary color of the jersey will be black, with fans getting to choose from a red, camouflage or red & white side panel. According to the site voting will run throughout the week, with the winning design to be unveiled next Monday. Personally I’m a fan of the camouflage look, since it’s a design rarely seen outside of the special jerseys made for a couple of those aircraft carrier games in the past.

VCU’s basketball program will be getting new uniforms this season. The changes are subtle, but there is one thing that I would have done differently were I the one making the decisions.

Why isn’t ‘Havoc’ written on the jerseys somewhere? More than anything, that’s the word that is associated with VCU’s program. It’s written on every sign in and around the Siegel Center. It’s written on the seats on one side of the courts. It’s the program’s identity.

Wouldn’t it have been awesome to get that on the uniform somewhere?

St. John’s is no longer under the Nike brand. This year the Johnnies will sport new Under Armour jerseys.

On Tuesday, head coach Steve Lavin gave his more than 10,000 Twitter followers a look at all four of St. John’s jerseys for this season. The Red Storm will wear two sets of home and away jerseys — one for Big East play and another one for non-conference games.

The first jerseys we’ll see this season, will included the New York skyle faded into the bottom of the shorts and behind the numbers on the jerseys.

The Big East uniforms will be a throwback to St. John’s glory days. The uniforms will have similar font and numbering to the successful days of the 1980s. In Lavin’s tweet, showing these throwback jerseys, he hashtaged the last name of several famous members of those St. John’s teams — Lou Carnesecca, Chris Mullin, Mark Jackson and Walter Berry.

In its first season in the new Big East, Xavier has unveiled its new basketball uniforms through the team manager’s Twitter account on Saturday.

This is the third program to show glimpses of their new threads this week. Kansas freshman sensation Andrew Wiggins previewed the Jayhawks new unis in a GQ photo shoot, while Baylor decided to take it easy on spectators’ eyes and went with a more traditional look.

Here is forward Jalen Reynolds in the new Musketeers home uniform:

Earlier this week, Kansas released their new uniform design in a video of Andrew Wiggins at a GQ photo shoot.

Baylor wasn’t quite as extravagant in their announcement, as the official men’s basketball twitter feed posted two pictures on Wednesday night of this season’s uniforms:

I like it.

It seems like Adidas is really going for the whole shoulder stripes look this year, and while some folks have pushed back against it, I like it.

At least the color of the jerseys don’t require sunglasses to look at them.
