Hurricanes Hoopsters Have New Look!

Oct. 12, 2000

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Hoop pundits are calling new University of Miami Hurricanes coach Perry Clark a complete package. After a stellar 11-year run with Tulane University, he’ll lead his young Big East team into a challenging 2000-2001 season.

With that challenge comes a new look in the form of a complete uniform package. Following on the heels of its Hurricane gridiron uniform innovations, Nike Team Sports outfits the Hurricanes with basketball attire that incorporate the unique look and identity package unveiled earlier in the year for the football team.

Nike Team Sports has integrated a more modern aesthetic to the overall design of the uniform. Its sleek design lines run from the jersey all the way through the short, accented by contrast piping.

Nike has also incorporated technological advances and uniform fit inspired by advances in Nike’s Sydney Olympic basketball uniforms. Additionally, the graphic package is updated to include new “Miami” type on home uniform and a bold, two-tone “U” graphic only on the away uniform jersey. Graphic innovations also include an iconographic new “Ibis” logo on short panels.

Nike Team Sports will also offer an extensive line of Miami retail products for Fall 2000, including a replica version of the new basketball uniform.
