(3-19-22) In June 2021 the Wilson Sporting Goods Co., in partnership with the National Collegiate Athletic Association® (NCAA), introduced its new official game ball for the 2022 NCAA men’s and women’s basketball championships, as well as the National Invitation Tournament. Featuring the NCAA logo with gold foil embellishments, the Evo NXT will be used beginning with the 2021-22 season.

Wilson worked with the governing body and its member schools to test and approve the new ball that has a Micro-Touch cover, providing an extra layer of grip and moisture management, and a super soft core providing exceptional control and a softer feel. The Evo NXT’s revolutionary extended-range tech optimally balances the weight of the ball, with advanced internal construction, making the ball easier to shoot from long-range.

Can high school game balls be bright orange soon?
