WVU Women’s Basketball Wearing Black Jerseys for Baylor Game



WVU Women's Black Jerseys

WVU Women’s Basketball will play one of their biggest games of the season this weekend, hosting the No. 24 Baylor Bears at the WVU Coliseum on Saturday, Feb. 24, and they’ll come dressed for the occasion with ‘Blackout’ themed jerseys.

A video reveal on the No. 22 Mountaineers’ Twitter account showed off the new threads, which boast a black base with the numbers, name plates and Big 12 logo leaping off the page in gold. The “West Virginia” logo text, meanwhile, is a deep blue framed with gold piping.

The Black Out game represents just one of a series of festivities this weekend, as the Mountaineers’ celebration of their 50th season in team history continues. A number of former team members will be in town for the celebration, including Georgeann Wells, as the Mountaineers rename a road in honor of Kittie Blakemore, the first coach in the history of the women’s basketball program.

Fans are encouraged to match the team and wear black, and the Mountaineers announced that the first 500 fans in attendance will receive black rally towels.

WVU Women’s Basketball fell to Baylor 65-58 on February 10 in Waco. Right now, they trail Oklahoma for the Big 12 conference lead by two games, so with three contests remaining in the regular season, they’ll need a win to maintain a chance at the conference title. 

This will be the second time a West Virginia basketball team rocked black jerseys in a game this season. The men’s team wore their own black jerseys in the Backyard Brawl against Pitt.

A fan even created his version of what a black uniform could look like for WVU football.
