University of Kentucky basketball is getting a makeover for their game versus Tennessee...in the form of new uniforms.
The design is called Nike Hyper Elite Platinum, and is being marketed as "the latest and most innovative fit system". They're created specially for "superior performance and lower environmental impact" and are five percent lighter than the previous style.
Nike created the uniforms for the UK men's team as well as eight other programs in the nation. All of them have won National Championships in Nike footwear and apparel.
The press release stated that the programs donning the Nike Hyper Elite Platinum uniforms in 2012 include The University of Arizona, Baylor University (women's), Duke University, University of Florida, University of Kentucky, Syracuse University, The University of Connecticut (men's and women's) and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
