LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Are you a fan of short-sleeve shirt uniform tops?

You are now if you are a University of Louisville fan.

We're one day away from March, which means its time to market college basketball gear. Louisville has teamed with adidas and created a new collection of uniforms, which are featured in the picture with this story.

A year ago Louisville went with the infrared tops that were actually more orange than red. This year Louisville has stayed true to the school's colors, but the tops for the men's team will actually be short-sleeve tops, similar to the ones that Evansville (Jerry Sloan in his prime) wore for many years. The Golden State Warriors went with the short-sleeve look this week.

According to a release from U of L, the men's and women's teams will start using the new look during the Big East Tournament. This is taken from the release:

The uniforms feature adidas' most advanced uniform technologies, designed to make an impact on the court, and a limited-edition camouflage print. The Cardinal men were selected as one of three programs to wear the new short-sleeved technology.

"The adizero uniform system gives players the leading performance technology with a distinctive on-court style," said Chris McGuire, adidas Director of Sports Marketing. "These uniforms celebrate the excitement of the game, letting players stand out during college basketball's biggest moments. Louisville will wear the most innovative basketball uniforms and footwear to help them elevate their game during the most important time of the year."

Unlike last season, the new gear will be available for purchase at multiple retail outlets in the area.

The word is that three other adidas schools – Indiana, North Carolina State and Michigan – declined an invitation to wear the short-sleeve tops
