NCAA Basketball 2017-18 New Uniforms

Forgive me if this has been covered as I’m not much of a basketball fan, but what’s the trend over the past few seasons with single color wordmarks and numbers? I find it pretty bland (unless it’s a traditional uniform like the Celtics) but watching the tournament and seeing teams like Miami, Florida, Houston, etc, it just seems like something is missing...and speaking of Houston, I’m having legitimate trouble making out the red numbers on a black uniform from a distance.

 

I can't speak for some of the other teams, but Florida's uniforms are the ones they wore for the PK80 tournament earlier this season.  In that tournament the uniforms were inspired by "Phil Knight's signature style."  Phil Knight, I guess, wears only black and according to the Nike website and wanted the uniforms to have subtle, simplified patterns.  Or something.

 

I just know Florida always seemed to play well in those uniforms this year, so people wanted them to wear them.  I actually like them, to be honest.

I really like those florida unis also, I think they'd be even better if you replaced the black with their blue, and made the numbers white with a blue stroke.

I didn't see this mentioned but am seriously curious.  Did Kansas State have the foresight to bring their home uniforms to Charlotte, or did they have to send back for them?  The only way they would be the home team is if the 16-seed beat the 1-seed, which previously had never happened in 33+ years of the format.  I didn't see the entire game; was this mentioned on the telecast?

The K-State Twitter account (for what it's worth) tweeted something like "Yes, we did pack the whites!"

 

To think that, within two days, they would be able to sew patches and ship them off to the tournament site is a stretch. I'm sure they came prepared.

If my very brief, long ago experience as a mid major football student manager taught me anything, it's that equipment staff is always ready for even the most improbable needs.

Even if they didn't pack the whites, a color-on-color matchup would have worked.  It would have just looked weird for UMBC's yellow to be the light color.

The NCAA requires teams to bring both sets regardless. When I worked with a program over a decade ago, there was no chance that we would wear our white uniforms in a Final Four situation as the low seed overall, but we had to bring them with us (and to the administrative meeting) in case something happened to the higher seed's white uniforms or something like that. 

 

The NCAA applies the patches either on-site at the arena or at the host hotel.

Why does Nevada's uniform have royal blue and yellow? Do I need a new laptop?

When did John Stockton shorts come back in style?  Asking for some friends attending FSU and Michigan.

I know this probably belongs in next's year's thread, but Wichita State is getting new uniforms next year with the switch over to Under Armour.

Since it's away from the tv screens I never see the site host anymore. Glad to see they still have the banner hanging over the scorers tables.

Nice to see the Final Four embracing the fiesta colors, unlike the Spurs.

The Spurs have been straight black and silver since leaving the Alamodome so not surprise their court at AT&T Center would show that as well. The fans will still buy up anything with the Fiesta colors on it though.

Have we seen a floor use big boards like that before?

"Big Boards"?  What?

'

Every panel has been 4'x7' on every floor ever since Connor won the contract in 2006.

Compare the Final 4 court to the Regional court posted above. I'm not speaking of the size of the physical panel that's laid down to construct the floor, but rather the boards within each panel. The Regional floor has the classic 2 inch wide boards. The boards on the Final 4 court appear to be about 2 feet wide.
