During the mid 1990's, the Kentucky basketball program went through a trend where the team was wearing some of the most outlandish basketball shorts ever designed. Converse used the Kentucky basketball program as a platform to try out new design ideas and unusual styles. The 1993-93 Wildcats wore one of those crazy uniforms sets.
The team's uniform shorts featured an unusual striping pattern that completely broke the mold in shorts design, especially at a program with the traditional history of Kentucky. The stripes swirled around the shorts from the front to the back and created a look like nothing else the team had ever seen before. The shorts were also paired with a jersey design that featured the traditional KENTUCKY arch in white on the white jerseys and in blue on the blue jerseys. This was another break from Kentucky uniform tradition.
These uniforms are probably most remembered as the set that the Wildcats wore in the Mardi Gras Miracle game against LSU in 1994 in which they came back from a 31 point deficit to win the game. These uniforms will forever be remembered because of this great game, which was one of the best in UK basketball history.
