Nike Unveils New Oregon Duck Basketball Throwback Jerseys

2014 Elite Dominance Oregon Ducks

The Ducks have gotten another Nike makeover. But this time it’s focused on the hardwood as opposed the gridiron.

And the University of Oregon is just one of seven schools getting the throwback treatment.

Joining the Ducks with new Nike Hyper Elite 2014 jerseys are Michigan State, Ohio State, Duke, Kentucky, Syracuse and North Carolina. In today’s announcement, Nike said the new uniforms celebrate the past and present of seven outstanding programs.

According to Nike:

Nike created the uniforms with performance innovation at the forefront — considered design that benefits the athletes. The jersey is a lightweight, breathable and durable: sphere fabric with flocking at the interior neck for sweat management, while articulated armholes maximize range of motion. The back of the jersey features team-specific aerographic mesh graphics.

You can see the new threads in action on the following dates:

  • Feb. 1: Michigan State vs. Georgetown
  • Feb. 11: Ohio State vs. Michigan
  • Feb. 15: Duke vs. Maryland
  • Feb. 15: Kentucky vs. Florida
  • Feb. 19: Syracuse vs. Boston College
  • Feb. 22: North Carolina vs. Wake Forest
  • Feb. 23: Oregon vs. Washington State
