FILE - This March 10, 2013 file photo shows Notre Dame's Skylar Diggins during in the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in the quarterfinals of the Big East Conference women's tournament against South Florida in Hartford, Conn. The neon-colored jerseys and camouflage-covered shorts debuted by six teams in their post-season conference championships ahead of the NCAA men's basketball tournament weren't well received in the press and social media. The changes happened to be in line with fashion runways and in recreational athleticwear, where highlighter brights and creative camo have been bona fide trends, and alternate uniforms have become part of the college football and basketball landscape, but on the court, these uniforms still made fans cringe.
