LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- When the University of Louisville men's basketball team hosts Duke later this month, they'll be sporting some throwback jerseys.

The Cards will hit the court in 1980s inspired uniforms, complete with the dunking cardinal bird.

It's a modern take on the jerseys worn during U of L's 1980 and 1986 NCAA Championship runs.

Each leg of the shorts showcases the Louisville "Dunking Bird" Cardinal logo that was prominent back then.

This year marks the 35th anniversary for the Cardinals' 1980 championship.

U of L takes on Duke Jan. 17, at the KFC Yum! Center.
