Fans have been screaming for new Kentucky basketball uniforms, and they could get their wish in 2020-21. The website InsideHook reached out to 357 schools to ask about any uniform design changes, and Kentucky's folks said the Wildcats will introduce a new gray alternate. It will have the same checkerboard side panels, per InsideHook's scoops:
Kentucky No visuals yet, but a team rep says the Wildcats will introduce a new gray alternate at some point this season. It will have the same basic design as the team’s primary home and road uniforms — same lettering, same trim, same checkerboard side panels. Meanwhile, Rupp Arena has been rebranded as Rupp Arena at Central Bank Center (really rolls right off the tongue, doesn’t it?). As a result, logos with the new branding — big, blue boxes that look as awkward as the new arena name sounds — have been placed over the old “Rupp Arena” logos on school’s court. [InsideHook]
Kentucky's checkerboard uniforms have been an ongoing complaint from much of the fan base since they were introduced back in 2016. Those fans will now get their wish, a new alternate uniform at some point in the upcoming season. BBN, your thoughts?
