Kentucky Wildcats to sport new look during 2016-17 basketball season

UK created a buzz Wednesday when it unveiled a new look for John Calipari's Wildcats in the 2016-17 college basketball season.

The Nike uniforms were released on the UK Equipment Staff's official Twitter account.They are fairly consistent with the uniforms that the Cats have worn in recent seasons, but now feature the checkerboard blue and white pattern down the entire length of the jerseys and shorts. They also feature a blue collar V-neck on the jersey and more of a traditional sleeveless cut.
