Wisconsin basketball unveils new uniforms for 2016-17 season

On Sunday, the Wisconsin basketball program unveiled its new uniforms for the 2016-17 season. The Badgers, who are No. 10 in the preseason Coaches Poll, will be bringing a classic look to the court.

Wisconsin’s new Under Armour uniforms have a clean look, with red accenting on the bottom of the shorts and on the collar to compliment the all-white look.

Wisconsin will also wear a special patch on the right shoulder for the upcoming season that features three sets of initials. The initials are to honor fallen members of the Wisconsin family.

Glen Gard (Greg Gard's father) passed last October, Kathy Gutierrez (Lamont Paris' mother) passed in June & we lost Ab Nicholas in August.

That’s a great touch to the uniforms.

Wisconsin opens its season Nov. 11 against Central Arkansas. If the Badgers live up to expectations on the court, they should be making some major noise in the Big Ten and in the 2017 NCAA Tournament.
