THE Perth Wildcats will hark back to their 1995 championship days for this Saturday night’s NBL Heritage Round clash against the Adelaide 36ers at Perth Arena.

They will wear a similar uniform to when captain Andrew Vlahov, James Crawford, Scott Fisher, Ricky Grace and coach Adrian Hurley led the franchise to its third title.

The theme for the round is the 1990s, and the 36ers have also chosen a jersey from 1995, the year the team made the semi-finals, losing to the Wildcats.

“This round will be a blast from the past for sports fans, and hopefully serve as a wonderful reminder as to how far basketball has come in this country and the role that it has played as a major part of our wonderful sporting landscape for over 35 years,” NBL chief executive Jeremy Loeliger said.
