With this being the 50th season of college basketball at Houston Baptist, the school has planned various events throughout the season in order to celebrate their past. Saturday players from the 1960s and 1970s were honored, with the all-decade teams announced at the Huskies’ game against New Orleans.

You can’t celebrate the past without having throwback uniforms for the occasion, and Houston Baptist wore a uniform that was simply outstanding. A home white jersey top (with a dribbling husky) paired with blue, orange and white striped shorts? Sartorial excellence.

According to the basketball program the uniforms worn during the 1973-74 season were the inspiration for Saturday’s look.

The Huskies won 74-73 thanks to two Cody Stetler free throws with 14 seconds remaining, with Stetler preserving the lead with a blocked shot on the other end. There was also a costume contest for the fans, who were encouraged to wear their best 60s/70s clothes for the occasion.
