Kentucky big man Willie Cauley-Stein has taken huge leaps of improvement on the court his sophomore year. The enigmatic shot-blocker has also started to let his goofy personality show through.
In the Wildcats' loss to Baylor last weekend, Cauley-Stein debuted his new hairstyle, rocking the 'fro with a bright blond patch sticking out of his headband. Now it seems like he has taken things a step further and gone all blond.
Wow. That is something else.
Personally, I love it. The kid is having a great year so far, and I'm all in favor of him having a good time. It's not like it's going to keep him from playing good basketball. And WCS should start getting some serious lottery interest this year, so if his hair helps him get noticed, all the better for him.
Besides, it's not like Kentucky has a short history of great big men with interesting hair choices.
