Nike unveiled their brand new Nike Hyper Elite Platinum uniform on Wednesday for eight schools and nine basketball men's and women's programs, including the Syracuse Orange, Connecticut Huskies, North Carolina Tar Heels, Duke Blue Devils, Kentucky Wildcats, Florida Gators, Baylor Bears and Arizona Wildcats.

All of the programs listed except Baylor get a uniform for their men's program while Baylor and UConn get women's uniforms.

Each uniform is a platinum base highlighted by the colors of each school. The key to this collection of uniforms is the weight, which is ultra-light and allows players optimal movements, especially late in the game.

The jerseys are 5 percent lighter than previous Nike Hyper Elite versions, the shorts feature laser perforations for breathability and the Nike Hyper Enforcer shoes offer a mixture of dependability and flexibility.

The uniforms will only be worn once by each team on the following dates: UConn vs. Notre Dame (1/29), Kentucky vs. Tennessee (1/31), Duke vs. Maryland (2/11), Baylor (women’s) vs. Texas A&M (2/11), Florida vs. Tennessee (2/11), Syracuse vs. USF (2/22), Arizona vs. UCLA (2/25), UConn (women’s) vs. Notre Dame (2/27) and UNC vs. Maryland (2/29).

Check out photos of the uniforms below and check out Nike for more information.
