adidas today unveiled the Create Yours uniform collection for the 2017 #ncaa #basketball postseason. Teams suiting up in the collection include Arizona State University, Indiana University, University of Kansas, University of Louisville, University of Miami, Mississippi State University, North Carolina State University, University of Nebraska and Texas A&M.
The 2017 Create Yours collection features a re-engineered mesh fabric designed for increased breathability and French terry wipe-zones for further sweat management. For the first time, both men’s and women’s teams will don new uniforms for postseason play. The men’s jerseys have team slogans emblazoned along the bottom of each jersey’s side to emphasize a team-first mentality while the women’s jerseys have black trim strategically placed at the bottom so the players can look down and spot their team’s rallying cry.
Create Yours Uniforms will be on court beginning with conference tournament play and feature design elements that honor each team’s unique identity and #school history including:
Arizona State University
The sunbeam print on the men’s shorts is inspired by the iconic Arizona desert sunrise and the team’s Pitchfork logo. The men’s jersey reads, “Go Devils” on the inside of the neck and “Fear the Fork” towards the bottom. The women’s jersey reads “Give ‘em Hell!” while the shorts have “Sun Devils” down the side.
The Hoosiers will don uniforms inspired by the candy-striped warm-ups made famous in the early 70s by legendary head coach Bob Knight. The tonal Victory Red and white pattern along the waistband is reminiscent of the championship banners that hang in Assembly Hall. The back of the men’s shorts and the inside of the jerseys honor the team’s five national titles with five embroidered stars and a call out of the championship years respectively, while the inside of the women’s jersey reads “Hoosier Nation.”
University of Kansas
The team with the loudest arena in college hoops will #sport uniforms branded with KU’s famous chant, “Rock Chalk Jayhawk” on the bottom edge of each jersey. The men’s jersey pays homage to the team’s five national titles with a list of the championship years inside the neck of the jersey and the women’s jersey features color blocking on the shoulders. The women’s shorts feature crimson trim running down the side of the shorts whereas the bottom of the men’s shorts is trimmed in crimson.
University of Louisville
The trim on the men’s and women’s jerseys proudly states the #school rallying cry, “Louisville First, Cards Forever.” The inside of the men’s jersey lists the team’s championship years and the men’s and women’s shorts feature a wing print inspired by the cardinal mascot.
University of Miami
The shorts feature a hurricane print, inspired by the city’s weather. The piping on the women’s jersey reads, “It’s about The U”. The inside neck of the men’s jersey reads “The U" and “itsallabouttheu.”
Mississippi State University
The men’s and women’s shorts feature a cowbell print and the Bulldog logo is featured prominently on the leg. The slogan on the women’s jersey reads, “true maroon” and the men’s jersey reads, “this is our state” both inside the jersey and along the bottom side seams.
NC State University
The Wolfpack’s shorts #sport both a wolf claw mark print along the side and the logo. The waistband of the men’s shorts reads “PACK” and a two-color taping is featured down the side. The women’s jersey displays “Wolfpack” along the bottom hem and the piping down the side of the men’s jersey reads, “Go Pack.”
University of Nebraska
The Cornhuskers’ shorts are a nod to the warm-ups worn during Nebraska’s most successful run in the 90s and the iconic voltage print runs down the side. The special trim on the bottom of the women’s jersey says “Husker Power” and the side of the men’s jersey towards the bottom reads “Husker Nation” along a customized trim.
The tonal star print pattern along the bottom hem of the Aggies’ shorts are a tribute to the history of the Lone Star State. The men’s jersey has five stars representing the five titles the team won and the inside of the vent on the jersey’s bottom reads “Gig ‘Em” as a nod to one of the #school chants.
Players will lace up the latest #adidas #basketball #footwear including special editions of Harden Vol. 1, Dame 3 and Crazy Explosive designed in team colors. Shoes feature either a #school pride mid-sole or solid color mid-sole with an iced-out bottom that allows the team graphics to show through.
