Cincinnati Bearcats x Legacy Collection
19nine’s Legacy Collection dives inside the archives to bring back some college basketball classics. Like the originals, we crafted each Legacy pair of retro shorts with the materials and details to honor the original designs. It was a labor of love in our pursuit to provide an era specific keepsake that celebrates the most iconic styles in college basketball history.
'96 Bearcat Legacy
It didn't take long for the 1995-1996 to shoot from #21 in the preseason poll to #3 after they started the season on a 12 game winning streak. Bob Huggins Bearcats won both the CUSA regular season and tournament championship which earned them the #2 seed in the Southeast Region of the NCAA Tournament.
Led by sophomore forward Danny Fortson, Cincinnati beat UNC Greensboro and Temple to reach the Sweet 16. A win over #3 seed Georgia Tech put the Bearcats one win away from a trip to the Final Four. It wasn't meant to be as UC fell to Mississippi State, 73-63.
For his part Danny Fortson was named Conference USA's Player of the Year after averaging 20 points and nearly 10 rebounds per game. He would go on to be one of the greatest players in the history of Cincinnati basketball.
I was so excited to get these! I remember being in Middle School watching Fortson and wanted these shorts so bad. You guys exceeded my expectations and took me back to Childhood. Now, it’s time to order more. Maybe a GTown Grey Legacy next???
You guys do a great job in college retro gear!
Would like to see some other classic schools like Ucla, Duke and the Chris Jackson/ Mahmoud Abdul Rauf LSU Tiger shorts
I own several pairs of 19Nine shorts so I was quite intrigued when they dropped a mesh version. These are just excellent. I wish they had pockets, but everything else is fantastic. The fit all around is great. My only minor issue on other versions of their shorts is that the waist is just a bit too tight for me (I wear a Large, waist 33) but not with these. They are a perfect fit. They are very comfortable and look tremendous.
