When UCLA hosts Washington on Nov. 15, the Bruins will be decked out in these black “L.A. Midnight” uniforms. They probably aren’t for those who prefer more classic looks, but as far as alternate uniforms go, these aren’t half bad.
Well, that’s … bold. Adidas introduced daring new alternate looks for six basketball programs Tuesday, continuing what’s become a norm in college athletics. UCLA will be among those donning camouflage-patterned shorts, joining Baylor, Cincinnati, No. 21 Notre Dame, No. 10 Louisville, No. 6 Kansas.
UCLA, Baylor and Louisville’s new alternates also feature camo sleeves. The Bruins last attempt at an uniform change didn’t go very well, using an all-blue look during a home overtime loss to USC. They’ll wear this latest edition at least once during the Pac-12 tournament.
UPDATE: A UCLA spokesperson said players were presented with uniform concepts in advance and loved them.
