Adidas unveiled alternate uniforms for six men's basketball teams, including Notre Dame.

Irish to wear alternate uniforms in tournaments

CINCINNATI – Tradition-rich UCLA and Louisville are taking on an unconventional look for college basketball’s postseason: sleeves.

Adidas unveiled its new brightly colored, camouflage-patterned uniforms for six men’s teams Thursday. Kansas, Notre Dame and Cincinnati will also sport the multihued shorts but will stick with sleeveless jerseys. Baylor will join the Bruins and Cardinals in wearing the short-sleeved top, which the company debuted with the NBA’s Golden State Warriors in February.

Alternate uniforms have become big business in college sports, from Oregon’s fluorescent tones with Nike to Maryland’s loud designs with Under Armour.

No. 6 Kansas, No. 10 Louisville and No. 21 Notre Dame are currently ranked in the AP Top 25. UCLA, Cincinnati and Baylor might need a few more wins to guarantee they’ll be playing in the NCAA tournament.

The second-ranked Notre Dame women and No. 16 Louisville will also wear the gear.

The teams will start using the uniforms for conference tournaments.
