STARKVILLE, Miss. - Mississippi State and its official apparel provider, adidas, Monday unveiled new ultra lightweight adizero men's basketball uniforms for the 2012-13 season. The Bulldogs will debut the uniforms in the EA Sports Maui Invitational this week, beginning with their tourney opener against North Carolina Monday night on ESPN2 (5 p.m. CT).

These uniforms come in addition to MSU's new maroon and white uniforms which were unveiled during Maroon Madness in October.

The adidas adizero uniforms are 32 percent lighter than previous Bulldog uniforms and are designed to reduce weight and add breathability to keep players lighter and faster on the court. 

The jersey features uniform technology that adidas first introduced in the NBA. The technology reduces seams, decreases friction between the garment and the player's skin, and optimizes the player's natural movement through specially constructed material. The CLIMACOOL fabric moves heat and sweat away from the body for optimal moisture-wicking and breathability to keep the jersey from becoming heavy during intense sweating.

The adizero uniform short is unlined to eliminate unnecessary weight and provide a more comfortable, closer fit with compression base layers. The short's stretch woven material works with the body's natural movement to increase mobility during quick lateral movements and sprints.

The uniforms design features bold trim lines down the side and a new Bulldog Bones print comprised of pixelated "bones" inspired by the rich tradition of Mississippi State athletics. The Bulldog print fades from smaller to larger font down the jersey's neckline to the chest panel and outward along the trim of each short leg.
