KNOXVILLE (AP) - Tennessee's basketball team has its version of the gray uniforms the football team occasionally used last season.
The Volunteers unveiled the Adidas-designed postseason uniforms Thursday in a university release and said they could wear them as soon as the Southeastern Conference tournament, which starts Wednesday in Atlanta. The dark color is described as "Smokey gray," a nod to the school's mascot.
Tennessee's football team wore Smokey gray uniforms last season against Georgia and Vanderbilt.
The Tennessee women's basketball coaching staff showed its own version of the Smokey gray uniforms to the sixth-ranked Lady Vols before Tuesday's practice and said they might wear them for Sunday's SEC tournament final if they get that far. The SEC typically requires a higher-seeded team to wear a lighter-shaded uniform.
