Louisville Cardinals Going Camo for Big East Tournament
The Louisville Cardinals basketball teams will don camouflage pants for the Big East Tournament, starting on March 8 for the women's team and March 12 for the men's team.
Also, the men's uniforms have short sleeves.
The uniforms come from Adidas and are being called the "adizero uniform system."
Here's how they look:
And here are details—many details—about the uniforms from UofL athletics:
Designed for a bold on-court look and engineered to enhance player performance by improving fit, comfort and mobility, the adizero short sleeve uniform system is made from 60 percent recycled materials and features FORMOTION technology for comfort and maximum mobility during shooting and dribbling. FORMOTION also helps decrease friction between the jersey and skin to optimize natural movement. Jersey armhole insets with 360-degree stretch fabric promote free range of motion for the arms and shoulders.
The uniforms feature adidas’ quick drying Revolution 30 technology, found in current NBA uniforms and ClimaCool zones, which move heat and moisture away from the body to keep the jersey light and dry during heavy sweating. The super-lightweight woven short is designed for improved breathability and a closer, more comfortable fit with compression base layers.
