Here’s the field of 16…

16.  Garrett Collins РUNCG Spartans
Forward Garrett Collins gets the party started (and happy belated) with our Sweet 16 list.

15.  Caleb Wood РPennsylvania Quakers
Caleb Wood looks like one of the 3 Musketeers on the guard as the Quakers march into tournament territory.

14.  Bobby Morehead РMontana Grizz
The headband game needed to be represented in this bracket.

13.  Terrell Miller РMurray State Racers
Terrell Miller makes the NBA’s Nene look thin-haired.

12.  Jaylen Barford РArkansas Razorbacks
Jaylen Barford’s distinguished grey gives “senior night” a new connotation.

11.  Rob Gray РHouston Cougars
Replacing Kyle Guy this year as an ambassador of team man bun.

10.  Trae Young РOklahoma Sooners
Some chicks dig the “just woke up” look.

9.  Dylan Osetkowski РTexas Longhorns
You should see this modeled in corn rows.   Osetkowski broke it out earlier this season.

8.  Collin Sexton РAlabama Tide
This freshman has entered the college game and surpassed his own teammates – like Dazon Ingram and John Petty – with the voluminousness.

7.  Jalen Fisher РTCU Hornfrogs
Jalen Fisher brings color, curls, and style to the bracket – a Cinderella story in the making.

6. ¬†Nate Watson – Providence Friar’s
Nate Watson rocks the sherbet colored frosted tips, as do some teammates.

5.  Cartier Diara РK-State Wildcats
You can define this one.

4.  Lonnie Walker РMiami Hurricane
Anyone comfortable with the nickname pineapple head belongs on this list.


3.  Vincent Edwards РPurdue Boilermakers
Edwards reminds us of Rufio from Hook but has drawn other comparisons on Twitter.

2.  Jacob Evans РCincinnati Bearcats
Coaches nationwide are looking for versatile players this time of year.  Evans has displayed his range this season, showcasing earlier this season the short dreads, and now sporting something more reminiscent of the 1990s New York Knicks front court.

  1.  Donte DiVincenzo РVillanova Wildcats
    Nicknamed “The Big Ragu” by Gus Johnson, his hairdo matches the theme.

Best Hair in College Basketball

10. ¬†Deandre Bembry, Saint Joseph’s¬†

Saint Joseph’s University is located in historic Philadelphia and Deandre Bembry’s hairdo is reminiscent of one of Philly’s best ballers in history. ¬†Bembry also has a college game that is drawing comparisons to Julius Erving.

9.  Spike Albrecht, Michigan 

The player best remembered for his first half heroics in the 2013 NCAA Championship game (eventual loss to Louisville) is out with hip issues. ¬†But that’s not stopping Spike Albrecht from working on his new doo. ¬†And, this is not Albrecht’s first recognition to this esteemed group. ¬†In 2014, he was also named 7th to Myron Metcalf’s list. ¬†

8.  Jeff Short, Norfolk State

2.  Jameel McKay, Iowa State

Just as T.J. Shipes represents the 80s hair band with a head band, Jameel McKay provides the classic dreadlocks pulled back with a rubber band.
