Illinois wore the early 90s "Fighting Illini" white uniforms on Saturday. Best set in the history of the program.

I wish they would also add the orange version of that uniform to their rotation.

I think they're part of adidas' fauxback lineup.

You mean Converse. Same era of the mid/late 90's. Converse had the tire tread basketball uniforms. Oklahoma and New Mexico are the teams I remember right off the top of my head that had those tire tread unis.

Definitely fauxbacks to the Converse unis of the mid/late 90's

I don't know how many people actually took 2 hours out of their life to watch UT Arlington and Memphis (it was a pillow fight), but the uniform match up was actually pretty awesome! Memphis's gray looked cool and slick with the white outlines, and matched up well with UT Arlington's blue.

Wasn't really a huge fan of thesublimated camo-esque design on UTAs pants, but other than that they were simple but still stylish.

Michigan's breaking out their "Iced Out" Adidas alt tonight in the Bahamas against UConn:

I'd honestly rather we wear this full-time than look like a car drove over the crotches of all our players. (I think the colorblocking of the primary jersey doesn't balance with the shorts either.)

I always enjoy maize numbers/letters on white (with blue outlines) for Michigan. Reminds me of the Oakland Raiders AFL throwbacks where they have the numbers in silver with a black outline on white--one of my all-time favorite looks of any uniform.

I didn't realize that these Iced Out uniforms "feature a diamond pattern inspired by basketball nets" nor that "The uniforms are made of the same material Adidas uses for its NBA shorts and jerseys."

ASU bball looks pretty good - honestly an upgrade over Nike's set IMO. Adidas has proven it can use sets with normal waistbands, nice to see this new adidas team get a nice treatment.

When adidas sticks to classic looks, they make the best basketball uniforms in college basketball. Arizona State is a good example. Michigan,Louisville, and last year's March Madness uniforms happen when they try to get cute.

I'm watching the Oregon-Arkansas State game and I had no idea that the Red Wolves wore a copy of the Chicago Bulls' red uniforms.

At first I thought those pants were really shiny.

also to add, During the Battle 4 Atlantis A&M mirrored the football team and wore a "Black Ice" set.

Agreed. I think that is the best Kansas has looked in recent memory.

The only reason that Kansas set looks decent is because all the other trash Adidas has been rolling out. It is actually very inconsistent. There is no cohesion among the striping. The knee, waistband, and arm/neck are all different.

Oregon is wearing a special patch for tonight's game at Pearl Harbor. Also, from a video put out by Oregon, they may be wearing jerseys with "Respect", "Courage", "Honor", "Service", and "Integrity" on the backs of their jerseys instead of players' names.

Edit: Confirmed that Oregon will be using jerseys with those words instead of NOB.

Looks like all teams involved are doing this. FS1 is also scrolling the names of all the Sailors and Marines that died at the bottom of the screen.

I'm not a fan of the different nameplates like that, but I love how this tournament is being run. The scrolling list at the bottom of the screen, the honoring of those veterans still alive and in attendance at every opportunity. It's just plain damn cool.

They even had some of the veterans address the teams before their games in the locker room.

UMass will be honoring basketball HOF inductee and their former head coach John Calipari with a banner raising and jersey retirement ceremony at their game on Wednesday.

They'll be wearing these uniforms to celebrate the occasion!!!

I personally love them, but whatever. I'm not sure if they're true throwbacks or fauxbacks, but they're awesome and I hope they continue wearing them for the rest of the year (They haven't worn an alternate uniform yet and they usually have one). They were also a complete secret until pictures leaked of them practicing in them yesterday.

Also of note, the Athletics Department was planning on selling a bunch of retro merchandise exclusively at the game (to encourage people to go), but the demand was high enough that they began selling it on the website.
