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.
Russell "Sox" Walseth led his Colorado Buffaloes team to a 21-7 overall record during the 1968-1969 season. The Buffs went 10-4 in the Big 8 winning the regular season championship. That was good enough to get an invite to the NCAA Tournament where they would beat Colorado State before falling to Texas A&M.
Colorado would finish the season ranked #18 in the AP Poll.
