The University of Louisville basketball teams will wear new uniforms during post-season play.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Are you a fan of short-sleeve shirt

limited-edition camouflage print. The Cardinal men were selected as one of

basketball uniforms and footwear to help them elevate their game during the
