South Carolina and Under Armour on Friday unveiled the new men's basketball uniform design, with the team set to wear the new look beginning with the 2013-14 season.
According to Under Armour, its goal with the new uniforms was to create a unique visual on the court, and at the same time draw a parallel across various sports on campus. The two stripe story, first introduced in football, has been interpreted for the basketball uniforms as well.
The placement for the striping on the men's uniform is on the front left leg of the short and left shoulder of the jersey, creating an iconic placement and Under Armour's first asymmetrical look. The numbers on the jerseys feature a unique South Carolina Digi camp pattern, featuring the palmetto tree and crescent moon from the state flag.
There will be other color combinations. Only the white version was shown Friday.
South Carolina begins its season with a Nov. 3 exhibition contest vs. USC Aiken. Game time is set for 2 p.m., and admission is free.
