CINCINNATI - The No. 14/15 University of Cincinnati men's basketball team will wear special edition "Black Out" adidas uniforms during Monday's contest against No. 21/19 Notre Dame at Fifth Third Arena. The game starts at 6:30 p.m. ET and will be televised by ESPN2.
Bearcat fans in attendance are also encouraged to wear black for the game.
Designed and developed by adidas, the new Cincinnati uniforms feature solid color blocking of team logos, word marks and numbers with minimal accent color and shimmer finish for a bold on-court look. The monochromatic uniforms are a nod to team unity and pride for the Bearcats' team colors.
The uniform design is similar in spirit to those worn by select NBA teams on Christmas Day.
"We are excited that we have been chosen once again to unveil a new adidas uniform," UC head coach Mick Cronin said. "The players are really looking forward to wearing them. It continues to show that Cincinnati is a marquee brand on the college basketball landscape."
The Bearcats were selected by adidas last season to wear special adizero uniforms during their run through the BIG EAST Championship and NCAA Championship.
Since 2006, adidas has been the official outfitter for UC Athletics.
