On Friday night, the Michigan basketball program held a huge event on campus to celebrate the official unveiling of the Wolverines’ new Jordan brand uniforms which feature the iconic Nike Jumpman logo.
The new uniforms come after Michigan switched from adidas to Nike thanks to a whopping 15-year, $173 million deal with Nike last summer. The Wolverines now join the North Carolina Tar Heels, Georgetown Hoyas and Marquette Golden Eagles as the only programs to wear the Jordan brand on the college basketball court.
Michigan’s unis were unveiled during an event at Crisler Center with a special performance from DJ Khaled.
Here is how it all went down:

The new uniforms are simple and clean. It’s the perfect way to represent Michigan’s traditional look while providing some flash with the Jumpman logo.
Judging by the reactions of the players when the uniforms were unveiled, they have gone over very well.
Michigan opens its 2016 campaign on Nov. 11 against Howard.
