Colorado Buffaloes announce new basketball uniforms

The Buffs unveil new uniforms that will match their new hopes.

With the season tipping-off in less than two months, the Colorado Men’s Basketball program took to social media Wednesday to reveal their slick new threads for the upcoming season. Modeled by sophomore guard/forward D’Shawn Schwartz, (who will be wearing No. 5 this season) the Buffs will be sporting three different Nike uniform combinations throughout the 2018-’19 season, all-white, all-grey and all-black.

The Buffs’ new look is clean and simple, yet it doesn’t feel generic like the old sets. The design on the shorts looks personalized to Boulder — from the front, those look like mountain peaks that will go nicely with the Flatirons-stained floor design.

Besides the shorts, the most noticeable difference in this season’s threads is the black waistband on the shorts of the white and grey jerseys. You may also notice that the movement of the team logo, which used to be affixed on the sides of the white and grey shorts, now sits in the middle of the black waistband.

The only complaint about these uniforms is that they have grey alternates instead of gold. Yes, the grey matches the greater Colorado athletics uniform designs, but grey has never looked fresh on a basketball court. Basketball is a sport meant for teams to dress brightly, especially in yellow shades. The football team doesn’t have gold uniforms, but the basketball absolutely does.

The Buffs will wear their new threads when they begin their 2018-’19 campaign in early November. It’s a new season with new expectations, so it’s fitting this team will have new uniforms.
