The Arizona Wildcats got new jerseys for the first time in nearly a decade last year, sticking with their traditional red, white and blue color scheme. The UA is getting yet another jersey this time around, although it is nothing like you have seen them wear before.

Nike has unveiled the all-new Hyper Elite basketball uniform that was given to various top-tier programs around the nation, including the Wildcats.

Here are a few of the photos, courtesy of Nike and AZ Desert Swarm.

Pretty awesome if you ask me. Others are not huge fans of the unconventional look in college basketball, but most recruits would likely think otherwise. The Wildcats will wear these on February 25 against the UCLA Bruins, which is scheduled to be a national telecast from McKale Center.

What do you think of the new uniforms? Do you like the Oregon football-esque feel they'll bring to the program, or would you rather have the old school uniforms from 1997 back? It's a tough call.
