LOOK: Oregon unveils glow-in-the-dark electric green uniforms for Utah game
Oregon's threads are always top notch, and these may top them all
If the power goes out at Matthew Knight Arena on Thursday night at Oregon, the Ducks have a backup plan. And no, it’s not a backup generator. It’s the new uniforms the basketball team will be sporting against Utah, which apparently glow in the dark.
The Oregon basketball Twitter account showed a teaser of what the uniforms will look like:
This isn’t the first time Oregon has brought out some unique uniforms. Phil Knight, Oregon graduate and co-founder of Nike, has boosted the team’s threads across all sports for years and especially in football. The basketball threads have been pretty incredible as well.
The football team released a tease of a similar uniform in the 2015 season, but we still haven’t got a taste of it in the hoops world. And Thursday night we will.
The best part of all this is that it’s the least practical uniform function. Glowing in the dark is cool and all, but it won’t help Dillon Brooks sink his 3-pointers, nor improve the impressiveness of Jordan Bell’s dunks, nor improve endurance with ground-breaking technology. This is a feature you can add to your uniform because you’re a prominent Nike school and have the ability to do so. It definitely won’t hurt when recruits get a glance of these, either. Why the heck would you not want to don these?
