This season, Nike is outfitting nine top NCAA basketball teams with specially designed uniforms made from recycled polyester.

Designed at the intersection of sustainability and performance, the Nike Hyper Elite Platinum uniform is tailored for optimal efficiency of movement, while being five percent lighter than the previous Nike Hyper Elite uniforms. Featuring laser-cut bonded logos, a sharp platinum design as well as prominent accent colors, the Nike Hyper Elite Platinum uniforms are sure to shine on the court.

Teams to wear the Nike Hyper Elite Platinum uniforms in 2012 include The University of Arizona, Baylor University (women’s), Duke University, University of Florida, University of Kentucky, Syracuse University, The University of Connecticut (men’s and women’s) and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Look for these on court starting late-January 2012.
