UA Basketball – Gary Williams Pack

January 26, 2012 – Ben Berry

Located on Hull St along the Baltimore Harbor, UA Basketball has outfitted University of Maryland players with equipment for years since the Prototype. Now with their basketball division taking off, Under Armour shows they haven’t forgotten where they came from with this special set of kicks honoring the recently retired coach Gary Williams.

School colors and the Maryland state flag are the inspiration for these the three sneakers in the set. This Bloodline is mostly black with a solid red sole and yellow laces. The box print from the Maryland state flag can be seen on parts of the upper as well as on the entire strap with Williams’ signature. The Juke features the same checkered pattern along the heelstrap. Just like the Bloodline, a black upper with solid red soles and yellow CompFit sleeve wrapped with a monochromatic design and made with Under Armour’s HeatGear technology are all features seen on this special edition of Kemba Walker’s signature sneaker.

While the Bloodline and Juke were given to members of the U of M basketball team, the Funk was presented to Coach Williams in a special display box. The sneakers were presented to him during the Maryland/Duke game; the same night that the Maryland Comcast Center was renamed the Coach Williams Center.

Current NBA player Greivis Vasquez is an OG to Under Armour sneakers since he attended the University of Maryland and is one of the five UA Basketball flagship players; no word if he was gifted with a pair.
