George Mason's hair hits ESPN

By Dan Steinberg


Finally, ESPN had George Mason forward and noted fashion maven Ryan Pearson on to discuss the team's Pearson-inspired pledge not to cut its collective hairs until this 15-game winning streak ends. Dunno what took so long.

"You're coming into practice with your grizzly-bear beard, got the Afro growing out, and these guys are just looking at me like Man," Pearson said. "They're just trying to get me to get a haircut, but I told them what it was for, and we're all teammates, we all love each other, so they've got my back, they came out and just all the interviews we did, they came out and told the press, hey, we're not cutting our hair until this winning streak's over....We get a lot of guys who say hey man, y'all guys should really get a haircut, but then you've got a lot of guys who's all for it....

"Even in practice, we make jokes about each other because we're looking so raggedy, but we go out there and perform on the court, so we look past the hair....My beard is just getting out of control. It's in the way when I try to zip up my jackets, my hair gets caught in the zipper, my Afro I've got to constantly keep combing it and picking it out. There's a lot that goes on to trying to keep long hair."

Come for the quotes on hair, stay for Pearson's incredible pre-game dance moves at the end of the video.
