When most of us think of the term Player Exclusive, most people think of professional athletes, but as this week’s NCAA Watch shows, there are plenty of exclusive colorways that make their way to some of the top colleges in the U.S. This week, a number of schools that are supplied by adidas Basketball hit the courts, and the footwear that took them there was rather impressive.

Both Louisville and Northwestern players were spotted wearing exclusive colorways of the Derrick Rose signature, the adidas adiZero Rose. Louisville’s Mike Marra even got his hands on the newly available adidas adiPURE. Indiana’s program may be struggling to regain their once top-tier form, but their players’ sneaker options include exclusive colorways of the adidas TS Heat Check and TS Beast.

In the rest of the action, a number of Jordan Retro models and the “Suns” Air Max Penny were spotted. Check out the photos courtesy of Yahoo and ESPN below.
