Ryan Pearson explains the Mason hair club

By Dan Steinberg


I mentioned last week that the George Mason Patriots have pledged to stop cutting their hair until their longest-in-the-nation winning losing streak finally ends. The Patriots play two CAA bottom dwellers this week. If they sweep those games and win the CAA tournament, we're talking about at least three more weeks before these hairs get trimmed. And Ryan Pearson, seen above, apparently hasn't had a haircut since the winning streak began on Jan. 12. That's a legit hair club.

"It just gives us our own little personality," Pearson told Comcast SportsNet. "Everybody come out here, we looking rough, we looking a little intimidating. We intimidate our opponents and we get Ws. That's what we're doing....My mom hates when my hair's like this. She is so against it, but I told her it's for the team. Whatever it takes for the team to win, I'm gonna do."

"until their longest-in-the-nation losing streak..." You must have the Wizards on your mind.
