Kentucky basketball will apparently rock their checkerboard uniforms again this season.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Midwest Regional Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

With college basketball just two months away, the Kentucky men’s basketball team had a photo shoot this week that apparently leaked that the team will be wearing their checked uniforms again this season.

Though Kentucky’s are certainly more appealing than their rival Tennessee’s, the checkerboard uniforms aren’t exactly the most attractive style.

After seeing Kentucky change their logo, could we also witness the final season of the checkerboard uniforms? If you’re a checkerboard fan, it may be advisable to enjoy the uniforms while the team wears them.
