Here are your first photos of the new Nike Hyper Elite Platinum uniforms the UConn men and women will each wear this season. The men will don theirs this Sunday vs. Notre Dame, and the women will wear theirs when they face the Irish on February 27.
It appears for now that the uniforms are scheduled as a one-off design, so for the rest rest of the year the teams will be rocking their boring old Nike Hyper Elite uniforms -- no platinum.
The men and women are two of nine programs chosen to debut the Platinum line. The others are: Arizona, the Baylor women's team, Duke, Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina and Syracuse. All of those teams have won national titles in Nike gear.
