The Gonzaga men’s basketball team will feature an alternate style of uniforms Friday night against Bryant University.

For the second straight season, the Zags will wear turquoise uniforms in honor of Native American Heritage Month. Turquoise is a symbol of friendship, harmony, and fellowship in Native American cultures.

Nine schools across the country are partnering with Nike N7, which represents Nike’s commitment to inspire Native American youth to participate in physical activity.

The other schools partnered with N7 this season are Oklahoma State, Nevada, Stanford, New Mexico, Florida State, San Diego State, Marquette, and Haskell Indian Nations University.

Last year, the Bulldogs wore the alternate turquoise uniforms in a 91-52 rout of nonconference opponent Northern Arizona.
