Northwestern, as expected, unveiled its new Under Armour basketball uniform Wednesday. Unlike the school’s new football jerseys, it doesn’t feature the Northwestern Stripe across the numbers. That’s a bit of a surprise, considering Under Armour placed it on the team’s practice jersey.

No fear, though, the Stripe is accounted for. It’s placed under both armpits of the jersey and on the sides of the shorts. Another cool feature: The numbers, collar, armpits and shorts (the sides, at least) feature the brick pattern of the buildings on campus.

And, like all Big Ten teams this season, the left shoulder is home to the required “B1G” patch.
