Nike launches seven special basketball uniforms

As college basketball moves into February, games get grittier and the competition becomes fiercer.

Every game counts as teams set their sights on the big dance and dig deep to triumph over rivals that stand between them and ultimate victory.  It’s a time for teams to draw on past successes for motivation.

Nike recognizes the tradition of college basketball and long-standing rivalries with seven special uniforms that fuse premium apparel innovation with school heritage.

The 2014 Nike Hyper Elite Dominance uniform celebrates the past and present of seven outstanding programs. The distinct jersey and short combination will be worn in select upcoming games.

The college basketball teams that will debut the Hyper Elite Dominance uniforms include Michigan State University, Ohio State University, Duke University, University of Kentucky, Syracuse University, University of Oregon and University of North Carolina.

Nike created the uniforms with performance innovation at the forefront — considered design that benefits the athletes. The jersey is a lightweight, breathable and durable: sphere fabric with flocking at the interior neck for sweat management, while articulated armholes maximize range of motion. The back of the jersey features team-specific aerographic mesh graphics.

The four-way stretch woven short features laser perforations and ventilation throughout the short and waistband for breathability and maximum movement.

The Nike Hyper Elite basketball shorts are made of 100 percent recycled polyester while the jerseys are made of at least 96 percent recycled polyester — saving an average of 22 recycled plastic bottles per uniform.

All seven uniforms honor each school's winning tradition with special logos, scripts and colors mined from each program’s past.

The uniforms will make their debut on-court beginning in early February. Dates include Michigan State vs. Georgetown (2/1), Ohio State vs. Michigan (2/11), Duke vs. Maryland (2/15), Kentucky vs. Florida (2/15), Syracuse vs. Boston College (2/19), UNC vs. Wake Forest (2/22) and Oregon vs. Washington State (2/23).
