Cue the college basketball fashionistas.

Kansas basketball will once again wear alternative uniforms in March as part of Adidas’ now-annual “Made in March” series, which was unveiled on Thursday morning.

In recent years, Kansas has worn the alternative jerseys for at least one game in the Big 12 tournament. This year’s alternative design features a familiar look for the top, while the shorts have a large Jayhawk on the side and a larger waistband.

From Adidas’ press release: “(The) jerseys were designed with the same lightweight, sweat-wicking technology used in the NBA and targeted ventilation zones on the chest, back and side to keep players cool even in the most intense moments of the game. A perforated pattern on the shorts maximizes comfort and breathability as each contest heats up.”

Kansas has loaded up on alternative looks in recent years. In addition to two throwback-styles jerseys that were put in rotation last season, the Jayhawks are also set to wear Adidas’ “Heritage Classic” uniforms on Saturday against Texas. The jerseys are part of a celebration to honor the 60th season in Allen Fieldhouse.
