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, itâs not a backup generator. Itâs 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 isnât the first time Oregon has brought out some unique uniforms. Phil Knight, Oregon graduate and co-founder of Nike, has boosted the teamâs 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 havenât got a taste of it in the hoops world. And Thursday night we will.
The best part of all this is that itâs the least practical uniform function. Glowing in the dark is cool and all, but it wonât help Dillon Brooks sink his 3-pointers, nor improve the impressiveness of Jordan Bellâs dunks, nor improve endurance with ground-breaking technology. This is a feature you can add to your uniform because youâre a prominent Nike school and have the ability to do so. It definitely wonât hurt when recruits get a glance of these, either. Why the heck would you not want to don these?
