What's the deal with those Aussie basketball uniforms?

I don't make it a habit to wake up early to watch women's basketball, but for some reason the neighbors decided 8 a.m. would be a good time to blast some Lupe Fiasco. Tuning into the gold medal game, I couldn't help but notice the absolutely horrid uniforms the Australian team was sporting.

Further research yielded this picture which shows that the Brazilian team also wears tight Lycra instead of basketball shorts. It'd be ridiculous to wear basketball shorts while playing basketball, right? How do you take something like that off? What if you get blood on it? So many questions, so few answers.

Fashion faux pas aside, the Australians have won the silver medal for the third straight time.
