Spartans debut Armed Forces Classic uniform
The Michigan State men’s basketball team wore much-talked-about camouflage uniforms for last season’s game on an aircraft carrier. It will don even more camo when it takes on Connecticut in the Armed Forces Classic on Friday at Ramstein Air Base in Germany.
Here’s a video on the uniform:
So, yeah, this uniform features camo on pretty much everything. It’s all over the jersey and shorts, of course, but it’s also on the socks, the shoes, and even the shoelaces.
All things considered, this isn’t too much of a difference from what the Spartans wore last year against North Carolina. It’s an away uniform, so it’s darker, for one. Also, the “Spartans” on the front of the jersey, the player numbers and the Spartan logo on the shorts are white, not green.
