BY foxsports • February 5, 2016

On Friday, the Kentucky athletic department unveiled a new secondary logo for its programs. The men's basketball team will wear the alternate logo on its shooting shirts.

Kentucky hoops will wear these shooting shirts for the remainder of the season.

The university also released new jerseys the Wildcats will wear only once, on Feb. 13  at South Carolina. These threads are being dubbed the "Disruption" uniforms .

“Kentucky is an athletics department with a rich tradition and an even brighter future,” Kentucky athletics director Mitch Barnhart said in a statement. “Our graphic identity honors that long-standing tradition while looking toward that bright future. I am excited about the consistency this will bring to the department and thankful to Nike and the many representatives of UK Athletics who participated in this process.”

According to the press release, Kentucky student-athletes, coaches, administrators, and historians worked for 18 months with long-time partner, Nike, to come up with the new logo and uniforms for the basketball and football teams.
