IU basketball to wear alternate cream uniforms for Illinois game

Indiana will wear alternate uniforms for the second time during the 2021-22 season on Saturday.

For the game against Illinois, the Hoosiers will wear a specially-designed “Cream” jersey from Adidas.

While IU Men’s Basketball has long opted to utilize the color of white in place of the official school color of cream in its uniform designs, Saturday’s game against Illinois won’t be the first time that the Hoosiers have worn a Cream jersey. IU most recently more a cream jersey three years ago in 2019 against Ohio State as part of its celebration of the 70th anniversary of Bill Garrett breaking the Big Ten color barrier.

In addition to being cream, Saturday’s jerseys will have “Hoosiers” across the chest instead of the traditional “Indiana.”

“We greatly appreciate our partnership with Adidas and welcome the opportunity to team with them to feature three alternate uniforms during the 2021-22 season,” said IU Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Scott Dolson in a release by the school.

“Not only do these special uniforms recognize the contributions of so many both inside and outside our program, but they also offer something different and special to our current student-athletes.”

Indiana has one more unique uniform planned.  For the Feb. 24 against Maryland, the Hoosiers will wear a special “Honoring Black Excellence” Adidas design.
