It’s starting to look like the besleeved basketball jersey look the Golden State Warriors broke out last week will be more than a funky flash in the pan.

Adidas Vice President Lawrence Norman confirmed today that the NCAA tournament will feature a handful of teams that will unveil their own brand of revolutionary bicep hiding basketball t-shirts that have been implemented by an Adidas higher-ups who despise looking at armpit hair (I assume).

Says Sports Business Daily:

Adidas VP/Global Basketball Lawrence Norman confirmed that some teams during March Madness will be wearing short-sleeve jerseys similar to those worn recently by the Warriors, but would not specify which schools.

“We are still working on teams, but it will be a very innovative story,” Norman said. No. 10-ranked Louisville has been told that it will be one of eight men’s basketball teams to wear specially designed jerseys during the postseason and that an announcement is tentatively planned for later this week.

Teams that we know will not be bowing in to Adidas peer pressuring? Michigan and N.C. State. Good on you guys.
