WASHINGTON - When the Georgetown University men's basketball team takes the floor on Friday, Nov. 8 as part of the Armed Forces Classic at Camp Humphreys in South Korea, the Hoyas will pay tribute to the military by wearing special camouflage-print Nike Hyper Elite uniforms.

The Nike Hyper Elite uniforms, being worn by both Georgetown and Oregon, are the brand's most advanced system of dress and the lightest basketball uniforms ever produced.

In addition to the distinct camouflage patterns and superior weight reduction, the game uniforms feature unique embellishments. An American flag prominently sits on the left side of the shoulder, while the name plate on the back bears the letters "U.S.A". for Oregon and "RESPECT" for Georgetown, instead of the player's last name.

"It will be a privilege to perform in front of the men and women who serve and protect our country," Georgetown coach John Thompson III said in a statement. "The game is important but above and beyond the competition, it will be an unparalleled learning experience for everyone in our program."

The Armed Forces Classic tips off at 8 p.m. ET on Friday, Nov. 8 on ESPN.

While at Camp Humphreys, Georgetown and Oregon will participate in a variety of activities, including serving troops at a dining facility, conducting youth clinics for military families, holding open practices and touring the Pyeongtaek base.
