Starting this Sunday, January 29th, eight schools will wear specialized basketball uniforms released by Nike today. Each of these uniforms each have a platinum base highlighted by the colors of each school. Its ultra-light weight allows players to move freely, especially late in ballgames, is the innovative selling point of the new gear.
The Hyper Elite Platinum uniform is five percent lighter than previous Nike Hyper Elite versions. In addition, the shorts have small laser perforations that allow increased breath-ability, and new Nike Hyper Enforcer shoes also gives players increased flexibility and dependability.
The uniforms will be debut on January 29th when UConn hosts the Fighting Irish.

UConn vs. Notre Dame (1/29)
