Kansas, Indiana commemorating Pearl Harbor anniversary with jerseys

  Indiana plays Kansas in the fifth annual Armed Forces Classic on Nov. 11

The patriotic colors of red, white and blue will be prominent on the court when Indiana and Kansas men's basketball face off in their season opener on Nov. 11.

As part of the fifth-annual Veterans Day Armed Forces Classic held in Honolulu, and to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor, the Hoosiers and the Jayhawks will each suit up in special camo uniforms that pay homage to the military and the features of the American flag.

In addition to their camouflage patterns, each jersey will feature a "Remember Pearl Harbor" emblem accompanied by two anchors, an eagle and a star, according to a Kansas press release.

Indiana will wear its signature red with white stripe patterns going along the side of its jerseys and shorts, representing the red and white stripes seen on the American flag. Meanwhile, Kansas will don their blue get-ups with white stars on the side as a reference to the flag's other main feature. In addition, all Hoosiers players will have "Courage" stitched across the back of their uniforms while the Jayhawks will have "Honor" across their jerseys.
