Ohio State basketball team wearing special uniforms in the Bahamas

The Buckeyes are playing in the Bahamas and wearing special uniforms to mark the occasion.

As part of a month-long series of games involving various NCAA teams, Ohio State is playing two games in the Bahamas as part of the sixth-annual Summer of Thunder series. Like some other Nike and Jordan Brand schools, the Buckeyes will be outfitted in special uniforms for the trip.

Ohio State is scheduled to play two games (Aug. 7 and Aug. 8) wearing scarlet or white glorified practice uniforms that feature the school's athletic logo on the chest, similar to Nike's Hyper Elite Road Uniform line in 2012.

We've previously seen the uniforms that Pittsburgh and Kentucky will wear for the series, as each team has been unveiling them at its own discretion. Each team was allowed to add its own touch to the uniforms, as the Panthers opted for gradients and the Wildcats checkerboard stripes, but the Buckeyes' are a bit more traditional.

NCAA rules allow teams to take one foreign trip every four seasons, and other teams traveling to play in the Bahamas include the aforementioned Wildcats and Panthers, as well as Alabama State, Chattanooga, Cincinnati, Louisiana Tech, Morehead State, North Carolina, Northern Arizona, Ole Miss, Portland, Stanford, and Whitman.

Games will take place from Aug. 2 through Aug. 25, with the collegiate teams playing against a variety of all-star and club teams in the Bahamas.

Here are what the Buckeyes will be sporting:
