KU basketball to wear new uniforms for Armed Forces Classic

The Kansas men’s basketball players will be wearing new uniforms for their regular-season opener against Indiana in the Armed Forces Classic in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The two teams will play on Veterans Day — Nov. 11 —in a game that will memorialize the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Adidas, which outfits both KU and Indiana, created the one-off looks to “commemorate those lost in the Pearl Harbor attack and pay respect to the armed forces and its veterans,” according to a news release.

KU’s uniforms will be blue with stars, while Indiana’s will be red with stripes. In addition, the jerseys will have an emblem with the message, “Remember Pearl Harbor,” while individual names on the back will be replaced with the words “Honor” and “Courage.”
