6. Killer Crossover

This affordable outdoor basketball delivers an all-surface material with rubber channels.

Its pebbled surface offers enhanced grip, and deeper channels allow for reliable ball control, no matter what the shot.

The Killer Crossover comes in three sizes and color combinations: black or red and white for the official size, orange or light blue and white for intermediate, and lime or navy and white for youth. These variations all sport the official NCAA logo in silver, and the balls’ rubber internal construction provides exceptional resilience and bounce.


7. Evolution Backpack

Your player may have lots of basketballs, but may not have a way to carry their favorite to the court. The solution is Wilson’s Evolution Backpack, designed with the player’s needs in mind. This pack features a perforated compartment large enough for an official ball, a vented inside pocket for shoes, a tech-adapted shoulder strap, and a thermal-lined pocket to keep drinks and snacks cold.

This basketball backpack comes in black with either green, red, or royal blue accents and graphics, or gray with either back or blue accents and graphics. The heavy-duty nylon construction and zippers ensure performance and durability season after season.


8. Wilson Adult Shooting Hoodie

In cooler weather, a hoodie on the court keeps players warm and dry. Wilson’s adult shooting hoodie does that and much more. Its soft and lightweight polyester fabric moves with the player and offers moisture-wicking comfort and a superior range of motion. This garment sports an athletic cut styled like a uniform and has the classic Wilson “W” logo on the right shoulder.
