Big East Tournament 2012: Louisville, Cincinnati to Wear New Adidas Camo Uniforms

The Big East Tournament will look a little flashier as the University of Louisville and University of Cincinnati men’s basketball teams will be wearing new, ultra-lightweight adidas adizero uniforms this week at Madison Square Garden in New York, N.Y. Louisville will begin to wear them in their first game of the tournament on March 7 while Cincinnati will wear theirs beginning on March 8.

According to an adidas press release, Louisville’s new uniforms will be more than 25 percent lighter than their previous uniforms, while Cincinnati’s new uniforms will be more than 20 percent lighter than their previous uniforms in terms of performance. The jerseys feature what’s called a ClimaCool zone, also used in the NBA, which moves heat and sweat away from the body for breathability and to keep the jersey from gaining weight.

The teams’ shorts, which are unlined so that they are lighter and more comfortable in tandem with compression base layers, possess a four-way stretch woven material used to increase mobility and speed.

In terms of design, the uniforms feature new pixelated, camouflage patterns to shed weight and make players faster. The camouflage was inspired by the concept of teamwork, and amplified school colors pay homage to the excitement of NCAA tournament.
