The 2012-2013 season will bring the Alabama Crimson Tide new basketball uniforms. Pictures appeared online a couple weeks ago featuring players like Andrew Steele, Levi Randolph, and Trevor Releford in the new uniforms.
Although the team pictures only feature the Tide’s white home kit, photos later surfaced of the crimson away kit as well.
The new jerseys feature the Nike Hyper Elite styling of a narrower, streamline cut, and a new material base for a lighter feel. The back of the jerseys feature an Alabama specific aerographic print which includes Coleman Coliseum, a tidal wave, and the phrase “Roll Tide.”
Levi Randolph is also pictured with an arm sleeve that appears to have the same aerographic print that includes the Alabama Capstone logo.
The new uniforms are a welcomed change to the Crimson Tide’s basketball team. Alabama has been one of Nike’s flagship programs for years, but usually keeps a more traditional look. Alabama will join basketball powers like Kentucky, Duke, Arizona, Syracuse, and North Carolina in the Nike Hyper Elite basketball family.
