Under Armour rolled out its home jerseys for the UCLA men’s and women’s basketball teams Friday.

Both feature the arched block UCLA logo in powderkeg blue across the chest, a patch honoring John Woden’s Pyramid of Success on the upper chest, and Under Armour’s newly designed “Champions Made Here” logo on the bottom hem. The men’s uniform is updated with a powderkeg blue and gold UCLA stripe trim on the jersey as well as on the waistband and down the leg of the shorts. The women’s uniform has the UCLA stripe on the waistband of the shorts and the script UCLA logo on the side, but no trimming on the jersey.

Here’s the promo video UCLA released, but I captured the only actual shot of the uniforms above:
