Marquette To Wear Pink Uniforms For Saturday's Game Against Villanova

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Yep, that's a thing that's happening. UPDATED with Marquette's shoes for Saturday!

The big news coming out of yesterday's media availability for men's basketball wasn't Jamil Wilson saying John Dawson won the Georgetown game for the Golden Eagles, and it wasn't Steve Taylor saying he's 90% healed from his leg injury.

No, the big news was how Marquette's going to dress on Saturday afternoon against Villanova:

That picture comes to you courtesy of MUTV Sports. I want to share three other tweets with the uniforms in them, because depending on which picture you look at, the color looks slightly different.

So, we're going to have to wait until Saturday to see exactly what these look like under the lights of the Bradley Center.

A couple of things that jumped out at me:

  • It's the same "Marquette" across the chest as the baby blue unis, but the numbering is not the same. For a moment, I thought the numbering was the same as the new women's basketball unis this season, but those have squared off zeros.
  • There's no "AL" on the yoke of the jersey as per usual.
  • From looking at the picture of Burton holding the jersey, it looks like these do not have the Aerographics back like the usual jerseys.
  • I'm amused that the example jersey is Luke Fischer's #40.

Presumably, these jerseys will be auctioned off at some point in the not distant future to help raise money for cancer research, as Marquette did the same thing with the pink women's soccer jerseys from this past season. As far as I'm concerned, as long as you can read the numbers on TV or at a distance, I'm completely okay with these.

Your thoughts?

UPDATE: Here are the shoes that Marquette will pair with those uniforms.
