Photos: ISU's Dustin Hogue Shaved His Name, Number Into The Back Of His Head

Iowa State starting forward Dustin Hogue doesn't get quite as much attention as Melvin Ejim, DeAndre Kane or a few other of his teammates. Perhaps that'll change tonight when his Cyclones take the court at Madison Square Garden against UConn. Hogue will be debuting a special haircut for the Sweet 16 matchup - he had his name, his jersey number and a basketball shaved into the back of his head.

Maybe he just wanted to make it easier for the announcers to identify him - who knows. It's an odd move, but we've seen crazier.
