IHSA Changes Rules on Basketball Uniforms
(AP) -- The Illinois High School Association has changed three rules that affect the design of basketball uniforms.

Starting this season, side inserts on jerseys cannot extend into either the front or back torso of the jersey closer than one inch of any number. The lettering on either side of a jersey can be arched, but not past the midpoint of the number.

And any point on letters or other accents on a jersey can't come closer to one inch of any part of the number.

IHSA officials say those rule changes matter. They will make it easier for referees to recognize uniform numbers quickly during a game.

The IHSA adopted the recommendation Monday.
