The Florida State University men’s basketball team continued its recent tradition of wearing special uniforms in honor of Native American heritage at the Orange Bowl Classic, the team’s closest game to the Seminole Tribe’s Hollywood Reservation.

FSU donned its turquoise Nike N7 uniforms in a 93-79 loss to St. John’s University on Jan. 17 at FLA Live Arena in Sunrise, 15 miles from the tribe’s headquarters. It marked the second time this season and 23rd overall that FSU wore the special uniforms.

This is the 10th consecutive season FSU has worn the turquoise uniforms as part of the Nike N7 program aimed at bringing sport and physical activity to Native Amercan and Aboriginal youth.

“The Seminole Tribe of Florida approached us about this program and we are honored and excited to wear these unique uniforms,” FSU head coach Leonard Hamilton said in the team’s pregame media notes.
FSU is now 18-5 when wearing the special uniforms, which includes an 81-72 win against Mercer earlier this season.

The Seminoles will return to South Florida on Feb. 25 to face Miami in Coral Gables. Tip is 2 p.m.
FSU entered February with a 7-15 record.
