Sickest Hairstyles in College Basketball
Without further delay, here are ten of the sickest hairstyles in college basketball.
Michael Wilder, UC Irvine

Wilder is listed as 6'2", but his afro has to add a few more inches.
Surely Wilder used his hair as an added weapon to his box out when he grabbed a career high 13 rebounds against Long Beach State in January 2011.
Although the Anteaters are not the most prolific team in the country, Wilder's hair alone is worth the price of admission.
Ryan Evans, Wisconsin
Michael Ivins-US PRESSWIRE
Evans put up career numbers for the Badgers last season with 11.0 PPG and 6.7 RPG. Despite Wisconsin's exits in the NCAA tournament, fans have taken solace knowing that their team usually features the player with the best hair on the court.
Looking at the other rosters in the Big 10, Evans' hair still looks to be head and shoulders above the rest.

In Western Michigan's biggest contest of the season, a non-conference game at Duke, the Blue Devils dominated the Broncos 110-70.
Nerlens Noel, Kentucky

According to rivals.com, Noel is a five-star recruit and the No. 2 overall recruit nationwide.
Luckily for Big Blue Nation, with Noel's incredible skills also comes his incredible hair.
Noel rivals Wisconsin's Ryan Evans for best high top fade in all of college basketball. Cosmetologists are giddy at the prospect of the Wildcats and the Badgers squaring off in next year's NCAA tournament.
Angelo Chol, Arizona

As a freshman last season, Chol put up just 2.8 PPG and 2.3 RPG.
Nevertheless, his awesome dreads accounted for some serious fan love in Tuscon.
Next season Chol will look to retain his on the court swagger, but it will all start with the hair.

Whether he lets his hair hang down to his shoulders or ties it in a ponytail, Jett's hair always commands attention when the Bilikens take the court.
If his name and hair were not cool enough, Jett's game is just as smooth on the court. As a freshman in 2010-11, he led the team in steals with 44, falling just behind Larry Hughes for the SLU freshman record.
Marquavese Ford, Northern Illinois

His sick hair mimics his sick game, as Ford is among the quickest and most agile guards in the conference.
As a freshman last season, Ford had five multi-steal games, quite possibly a result of ballhandlers taking their eye of the rock to admire Ford's immaculate cornrows.
Look for him to continue to impress with his game and his hair in 2012-13.
Jeff Withey, Kansas

When stationary, Withey's hair has all the components of a preppy old-school Ivy League student. However, once he gets moving, Withey's hair goes in all sorts of directions.
With the ability to sport his hair in a faux hawk, a side part or a let-it-loose look, it is safe to say that his locks mirror his versatility on the block.
Look for Withey to continue to improve on his game and help the Jayhawks contend in 2012-13.
Robert Carter, Georgia Tech

Often rocking the fade with the chin beard, Carter has one of the best facial and head hair combinations in the country.
At the very least, no one comes close to him in the ACC.
Ed Daniel, Murray State

His afro is so well regarded that there is even a Twitter account about it, @Ed_Hair.
“Seeing the ‘fro up close and in person,” said Lough, with wonder in his voice, “it’s just majestic.”
Lucky for Racers' fans, the legend will live on, as Daniel will be returning for his senior season.
