Baylor Bears Make Fashion Statement

The Baylor men’s basketball team unveiled its new post season uniforms Thursday in the quarterfinal final round of the Big 12 Conference tournament. And all I can say is wow!

Those electric yellow uniforms are extremely bright and noticeable. They might even glow in the dark.

The Bears are one of three teams Addias selected to wear these new lighter weight uniforms. Big East members Louisville and Cincinnati are the others. But with a green and gold color scheme, Baylor is the most striking color combination. Louisville and Cincinnati have combinations of red, black and white.

By all reports, Baylor players enjoy their uniforms. The players even matched them with electric yellow shoe laces for their shoes.

The best part was how Baylor played in the uniforms. The Bears played one of their best games of the season with an eight-point victory over Kansas State. Baylor and Perry Jones III dominated. Jones had his way with the Wildcats with a career high 31 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.

Maybe Kansas State played poorly because it was blinded by Baylor’s uniforms. If that’s the case, maybe Baylor should wear even brighter ones.

Baylor now plays Kansas in the semifinals. The Jayhawks don’t need to worry about those electric yellow threads. Baylor is the visiting team and will break out the green uniforms. Probably a good thing for Kansas.
