This morning, we put out an article on the new UVa basketball uniforms, and how there are some subtle but noticeable differences. A new tweet from the Virginia equipment office details what will be in store for the Hoos this season.

The backs of the old uniforms, which you can see in the main picture above, had a more subtle design featuring the Rotunda and not a whole lot else. The new ones still do feature the centerpiece of the Academical Village, and orange numbering, but above the Rotunda, there's a "V" from the school's V-sabre logo and two huge sabres underneath.
Social media reactions have been very warm so far; what do y'all think?
