CINCINNATI -The University of Cincinnati men's basketball team has been selected by adidas to wear specialized Made in March uniforms throughout its 2013-14 postseason run beginning with the American Athletic Conference Championship, the footwear and apparel company announced jointly with UC on Thursday.
The collection was created to provide the Bearcats with adidas' most advanced uniform system and basketball apparel technology so they can take on the challenges and intense play of March.
The uniforms feature a functional perforated print pattern along the leg of the stretch woven short to enhance breathability and ventilation. adidas' quick drying jersey technology found in current NBA uniforms along with ClimaCool zones on the chest, back and side, move heat and moisture away from the body to keep the jersey light and dry. The jersey sleeves include armhole insets with 360-degree stretch fabric that facilitate free range of motion for the arms and shoulders during shooting and dribbling.
Cincinnati will wear the new uniforms beginning at the American Athletic Conference Championships, March 12-15 at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tenn.
Made in March uniforms will be worn by UC along with Baylor, Indiana, Kansas, Louisville, Michigan, Notre Dame, Tennessee, UCLA and Wisconsin. The Bearcats will be one of four programs to wear the jersey sleeves along with Baylor, Louisville and UCLA.
Fans can find the UC jersey and shorts available online at adidas.com and UC's official team store (http://shop.gobearcats.com). A list of other retailers will be made available once confirmed.
Since 2006, adidas has been the official outfitter for UC Athletics. This is the third consecutive year the Bearcats have worn specialized postseason adidas uniforms.
