Wisconsin had a unique look when the team warmed up for its Sunday game against Indiana.
The Badgers honored Black History Month with special warm-up shirts. They said “Honor. Teach. Inspire.” on the front and listed dozens of important people in black history, from Frederick Douglass to Jackie Robinson to Harriet Tubman, on the back.

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Wisconsin players and coaches were each tasked with selecting one name for the back of the shirt. Nigel Hayes (pictured above), told the newspaper that he chose Jamaican political leader Marcus Garvey.
Hayes has been vocal about racial issues in the past. Last September, the Badgers forward spoke out about racism on Twitter after police shootings in Charlotte, N.C., and Tulsa, Okla.
