With Duke athletics tied to a major contact with Nike, it's never a surprise to see Blue Devil teams in new gear, especially the men's basketball team.

The five-time national champions took to their Instagram account Wednesday and appeared to show some new threads for this upcoming season. At first glance, the uniforms are similar to Duke's current white throwback jerseys, but now include full blue panels on the sides and a new waistband. The Blue Devils were taking part in a photo shoot when the uniforms were first shown to social media.

Duke men's basketball will debut new uniforms in 2019-20.


Mike DeGeorge, the team's director of sports information, confirmed in an email to The Chronicle that the featured uniforms are the Blue Devils' new white game uniforms for the upcoming season.

The new look certainly conjures up thoughts of the uniforms that Duke wore in the starting in the late 1980s with thin lettering and colored panels.

The new uniforms should bring a lot of excitement to fans who just can't wait for the season opener on Nov. 5.
