Basketball Team Wins Title in Opponent's Uniforms

The Indiana University of Pennsylvania men's basketball team was all excited about their big game against Edinboro, until they realized they forgot one key thing.


The Indiana University of Pennsylvania men's basketball team was all excited about their big game against Edinboro, until they realized they forgot one key thing. IUP traveled the 100 mile trip before realizing they forgot to pack their uniforms!

Even though the IUP Crimson Hawks entered the game as the number 2 ranked team in the country, the game didn't exactly start off with the best omen. In the interest of sportsmanship, Edinboro let IUP borrow their old away uniforms for the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference West Division Title game.

As you might imagine, this token of generosity from Edinboro didn't come without some friendly ribbing.

IUP took it all in stride, putting out a tweet of their own about their uniform malfunction.

After the game, IUP claimed the last laugh though, as the Hawks won the division title. And yes, that meant the surreal image of a team celebrating a victory while wearing the uniforms of the team they just beat.
