Marquette University's men's basketball team is known for some of college's most unique uniforms. The most iconic of them being the untucked jersey worn in 1977 when Marquette won its first and only national championship. Commissioned by legendary coach Al McGuire, this forward thinking, and subtly subversive, jersey was designed by then current player and art major Bo Ellis. The jersey would later be banned by the NCAA. This exploration into the history of the 1977 Maguire jersey will provide insight on Ellis and McGuire, the power of uniforms, the correlation between sports and fashion, and the benefits of a creative environment, which allowed a Championship team to flourish.
