RCW: A Look Back 4.19



As Kansas Athletics looks to celebrate the retirement of Adrian Mitchell’s women’s basketball jersey and 50 years of women’s athletics, let’s take A Look Back at an early women’s basketball uniform.

Perhaps the most striking element of this uniform, worn in the early years of Kansas women’s basketball, are the short “bloomer” bottoms. The jersey also has a high, close-fitting V-neck and no identifiers apart from the number.

This uniform may have been one of the first sport-specific uniforms for the women’s program; in the earliest years, uniforms were shared across sports.
