Black jerseys have long been a topic of conversation surrounding Wisconsin football, but it’s Wisconsin basketball that won the race to wearing them.
The new black jerseys will be worn tonight against Penn State, and they are uniforms designed by and for the players.
The men’s basketball team worked to design the look as a celebration of diversity and inclusion in sports and beyond.
The new black jerseys also feature gold pinstripes with the words equality, unity, and Wisconsin Forward. The black and gold look will reportedly be worn throughout February for Black History Month. Check out Chucky Hepburn and Tyler Wahl repping the new threads:
