KU shows off new basketball uniforms on Instagram

Maybe by using Andrew Wiggins as an unofficial model, KU was attempting to diffuse all the concern and complaints that usually surround any major changes to Kansas basketball uniforms.

In what was seemingly an inadvertent leak (or maybe a soft rollout), KU athletics’ official Instagram account posted a video of Wiggins sporting a new variation of KU’s home white jerseys while posing for a photo shoot with GQ Magazine.

The uniform had a few noticeable changes from last year’s jersey, beginning with a new block of blue on the shoulders. The shorts had some differences, too. Kansas, which is outfitted by Adidas, has worn some alternate jerseys over the last few years, including a couple of forgettable looks. But if this becomes the primary look for home games in 2013-14, you better get used to Wiggins in this uniform.
