Under Armour does not make jerseys for NBA teams. So why will they be providing special uniforms for a game on November 9th in Brooklyn at the Barclay’s Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets? The game played on the 9th is an NCAA Men’s Basketball game between the Kentucky Wildcats and the Maryland Terrapins. Because this will be the first NCAA game to be played at New York’s newest basketball arena, Under Armour, which makes the Terrapins uniforms, has decided to pay homage to the borough in which the two teams shall play. The jerseys the University of Maryland players will wear harkens back to the Brooklyn Dodgers Baseball team. Since Brooklyn has not had a professional sports franchise since the Dodgers left for Los Angeles in the 1950’s, this was Under Armour’s only choice. The jerseys are the heather grey of the old-time baseball uniforms with Maryland’s red trim and Maryland written across the front of the jersey. The shorts are the same grey color. Overall, the jerseys look a bit odd at first glance, but after a few minutes one you begin to see that the combination of the grey and the red match well.
