Adidas has designed new Kansas men’s basketball jerseys, inspired by the Jayhawks’ uniform from their 1988 NCAA championship season, that KU will wear for their Feb. 28 home game vs. Texas.

The jersey, called the “Heritage Classic” uniform, has the letters “NCAA CHAMPS 1988” on the back collar and “showcases throwback letters, numbering and logos inspired by the 1988 uniform.”

KU is celebrating the 60th anniversary of Allen Fieldhouse during this season. A limited number of replica jerseys will soon be available for purchase at the KU Store in Allen Fieldhouse and online.
