Northwestern has teamed together with Under Armour to create new uniforms that the team will debut Sunday in their matchup with Illinois. According to NUSports.Com, Northwestern players gathered together last spring on the Welsh-Ryan Arena court.
The uniform features six designs important to the team. They used family, brotherhood and trust, the John Hancock Center, the Chicago Skyline, Eh, Eh, Eh, a Heart Shaped Basketball, a Heart Shaped Basketball and Pound the Rock.
The significations are as follows:
Family, Brotherhood and Trust are what Northwestern uses to signify the men's basketball team.
The John Hancock Center is the fourth tallest building in Chicago and the seventh in the United States. It has added significance to the Northwestern Basketball team. According to NUSports.Com, the team has had many "bonding and recruiting experiences" there.
Eh, Eh, Eh and Pound the Rock are the team's separate battle cries as the take the court before each game.
The Heart Shaped basketball is a representation of Chris Collins telling the team to love the game.
Although uniforms will create quite the stir, Northwestern has had thus far a difficult transition season under Collins.
The Wildcats are last in scoring offense and scoring defense in conference only games through their first three in the conference. They are putting up just 55.7 points per game while giving up 81.
