The University of Connecticut women's basketball team notched another championship on their belt this week, cementing their status as one of the most successful collegiate teams in history. To help the team celebrate their 10th victory, Nike has put together a collection of apparel and a special UConn-inspired Nike iD version of the KOBE X, all inspired by Coach Geno Auriemma's favorite quote, "Tradition never graduates" (even though Auriemma's teams boast a 100% graduate rate). The official T-shirt for the Champs reads "TRADIT10N" in red across the front while the fan-ready version shares styling cues with Duke's. To start, the KOBE Xs don a navy, red, and gray colorway with a metallic gold Swoosh, a number "10" on the liner, and speckle detail, but fans will also have the chance to further customize the look on NIKEiD. A custom Kobe Emerge Hyper Elite hoodie and a matching cap with Huskie details round out the collection, all of which fans can pick up now on Nike.com
