PORTLAND, Ore. - For the second consecutive season, Baylor will wear specially designed adidas uniforms in postseason play. Baylor, Louisville and UCLA are the only programs to receive the adizero short-sleeve uniforms, and the Bears will debut their new look during the 2013 Phillips 66 Big 12 Conference Championship, which begins March 13 in Kansas City.
The adizero short-sleeve uniforms feature adidas' most advanced uniform technologies and a limited-edition camouflage print designed to make an impact on the court.
Designed for a bold on-court look and engineered to enhance player performance by improving fit, comfort and mobility, the adizero short sleeve uniform system is made from 60 percent recycled materials and features FORMOTION technology for comfort and maximum mobility during shooting and dribbling. Jersey armhole insets with 360-degree stretch fabric promote free range of motion for the arms and shoulders.
The uniforms feature adidas' quick drying Revolution 30 technology found in current NBA uniforms and ClimaCool zones which move heat and moisture away from the body to keep the jersey light and dry moisture wicking technology designed to keep the foot cool, light and dry throughout the game. Players will wear the adidas Crazy Fast basketball shoe with a new SPRINTWEB design that features tighter panels on the upper to improve support, reduce weight and make players quicker and more comfortable on the court during heavy sweating. The super-lightweight woven short is designed for improved breathability and a closer, more comfortable fit with compression base layers.
The adizero uniform system features the latest adidas Team Speed sock with built-in compression for stability and CLIMALITE. A team patch on the back neck of the jersey features the line "Sic `em Bears" to pay homage to Baylor pride and team spirit.
