Samuel Lam’s 2012 Best and Worst Dressed in sports: NCAA basketball edition

Both teams wearing camo? Who thought this was a good idea?

Today is the final day of 2012 and we have gone through a lot of notable uniforms changes this year. In fact, there have been a lot of changes that have impressed me while there have been plenty that have made me rethink some poor decisions. But after seeing all that the uniform world has to offer, I feel that a best and worst dressed list is necessary for us to look back at history and remember what to avoid and what we can try again.

This list is a simple list. I am not going to make this a real awards show with numerous nominations. I just want to take what I like and don’t like and sprinkle in a few nominations for the sports I watch frequently. I’ll look into the MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL and college basketball and football.

To qualify for this list, the uniform element must be a new set that debuted and was used for in-game action in 2012. That’s pretty much it. Let’s go take a look at the list for college basketball.
