    The Illinois Fighting Illini basketball team will unveil new uniforms tonight from the Nike Hyper Elite product line.

    The top features lightweight, sweat-wicking materials that combine with solid construction to create a top that is ready for the toughness of the tournament. The short is a true performance short that is 66 percent lighter than comparable models. Laser-perforated ventilation adds breathability, allowing the short to dry 30 percent faster. The uniform back features a custom University of Illinois pattern inspired by Illinois' Assembly Hall, Foellinger Auditorium and the Urbana-Champaign campus I mark.

    Nike is producing replica white and blue jerseys as well as tee shirts and other merchandise inspired by the new design. The items are expected to be available next week (January 24) at FightingIllini.com, Gameday Spirit Fan Store in Champaign and other retailers which regularly offer Fighting Illini-branded, Nike apparel.
