Watch for UK players to debut new uniforms on January 31 against Tennessee.
Nike has designed a special Nike Hyper Elite uniform to be worn by nine of the country's top college basketball teams in select games during the 2012 season.
The shorts are made from 100% recycled polyester, and the jersey fabric is at least 96% of the same fabric. The uniform is said to be lighter, and was designed for superior performance and lower environmental impact.
Other teams selected to try the new uniforms are U. of Arizona, Baylor (women), Duke, U. of Florida, Syracuse, UConn (men and women) and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
UK's next game is on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 4:00 P.M. against LSU at Baton Rouge.
