Louisville will wear uniforms on Saturday honoring 1958-59 Final Four team

Adidas keeps churning out the specialty uniforms.

Louisville will be wearing specialty uniforms for Saturday’s game against Clemson that will pay tribute to the Cardinals’ first Final Four squad from 1958-59. The uniforms will have features similar to the ones U of L wore during that season.

This year marks the 60th anniversary of that 1959 Final Four team. The Cardinals that season posted a 19-12 record while facing 10 teams ranked among the nation’s top 20. Louisville won seven of its last eight regular season games before a 77-63 victory over Eastern Kentucky in the first round of the NCAA tournament that sent them to the NCAA Mideast Regional in Evanston, Ill.

In Evanston, Louisville toppled second-ranked Kentucky 76-61 in the regional semifinal. In the regional final, the Cards took down No. 7 ranked Michigan State 88-81 to secure their first trip to a Final Four.

These unis are undeniably bas ass, but let the record show that Louisville is 14-0 this season in their normal white uniforms. If we lose Saturday, I think we’re gonna have to put a moratorium on specialty uniforms for the rest of the season.

I’m sure Adidas will understand. They owe us some room to maneuver at this point.
