As No. 5 Arizona Basketball prepares for a marquee showdown with rival Arizona State in Tempe, the Wildcats released blue retro uni’s.
The Arizona Basketball uniforms this season just keep getting better and better. Long gone are the god-awful gradients that lasted six, agonizingly long seasons in Tucson.
And after debuting new uniforms with an ode to the 80s, as well as our retro uniforms from 1997, the Wildcats have released another version of the 1997 throwbacks.
Making news on Monday afternoon just ahead of their marquee matchup against rival Arizona State in Tempe, the Arizona Basketball social media page announced that Arizona will be donning another version of the infamous uniforms worn during the 1997 season. The blue ones!
Another look that is sure to be welcomed by Arizona Basketball fans everywhere, the Wildcats nailed the nostalgia on this one!
Over the years, we have lived through some pretty bad uniforms/looks. From the days of the thin stripe with the awkward duct tape-looking sleeves to the Hyper Elite Platinum alternates, and most recently the gradients, it is great to see that Arizona Basketball is finally back on the right track!
We’ve seen Arizona do a great job in incorporating themes and designs from the popular basketball uniforms of the late 80s, with a fresh and updated look for this season.
But now we also get to see another version of the classic 1997 uniforms again with updated technology to the material used.
The blue is perhaps more iconic with Arizona Basketball, and the look is clean and simplistic. Fans of the nostalgic will get to see those popular uniforms on display when the Wildcats take on Arizona State in Tempe on Sunday!
