Photo: Maryland to wear Brooklyn-inspired uniforms for season opener
The University of Maryland basketball team is slated to don some unique uniforms for their first game of the upcoming 2012-13 season. The game will be played at the brand new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York and their opponent will be none other than the defending national champion Kentucky Wildcats. They may not fare well in their season opener, but they are going to try and look damn good while doing it.
The new digs are designed by Under Armour and feature a "Maryflage" print along with a Brooklyn tribute. The grey, textured color and cursive font is meant to conjure up images of the baseball uniforms worn from the 1950s era, particularly those worn by the Brooklyn Dodgers.
“The expectation is for teams to come out in unique uniforms for big games. We worked with the school to do something that showed the appreciation for sports in Brooklyn," said lead designer Adam Clement.
Yes, I believe these would qualify as very unique.
