Nike has unveiled their new Hyper Elite Platinum uniforms for nine basketball programs, including Syracuse, North Carolina, Duke, Kentucky, UConn (men’s and women’s), Arizona, Baylor (women’s) and Florida.
According to Nike.com, “the uniforms were created specifically for superior performance and lower environmental impact. The fabric of the Nike Hyper Elite Platinum shorts are made from 100 percent recycled polyester while the jersey fabric is made from at least 96% recycled polyester.”
