INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indiana Pacers will sport a new look this year for select games.

Pacers President Larry Bird released the following statement:

“Our team will be honored to wear the Hickory uniforms because of the attention it will bring to the storied history of Indiana basketball and the success of the movie. ‘Hoosiers’ takes us all back to a special place and time.”

The games the jersey will be worn at were not yet announced.
