Kentucky’s New Checkerboard Basketball Uniforms Unveiled

The Kentucky Wildcats basketball team will have a set of new uniforms for the 2014-15 season. The white threads have a checkerboard pattern on the front of the shorts, as well as one that tapers up the side of the legs. The jerseys feature a graphic subtly laid into their backs.

As pointed out by College Spun, during a recent trip to the Bahamas, UK wore similar uniforms with the checkerboard pattern, though that design ran the entire length of the jersey.

Last season’s threads had a solid blue stripe in lieu of the checkered look.
