LAHAINA, Hawai'i -- When the Husky men's basketball team takes the court for Monday's first round game against Virginia (9:00 p.m. PT/ESPN2 TV) in the EA Sports Maui Invitational the team will be sporting a new look.
Washington will be wearing Nike's Elite Uniforms, designed only for the top college basketball programs in the nation. Not only are the uniforms the lightest available on the market, they sport a specially ghosted design on the back which celebrates each school's history.
The uniforms came to the forefront when Duke donned the uniforms during their 2010 NCAA National Championship run.
The jersey that Washington will wear has a design of Suzzallo Library -- the universities signature library -- a prominent "W" just below the numbers and the words "Bow Down To Washington" running in a banner.
In addition, the team will wear specially designed Nikes that have the words Maui on one shoe and "No Ka Oi" on the other. The words translate to "Maui is unparallel". Additionally, there is a palm tree on the tongue of each shoe.
