Without further ado, the Archive (latest update March 4; full Archive can be found here):
The Sharpie Kevin Love, UCLA/A.J. Price, UConn Classification: Thin-line facial hair Spotted: Bi-coastally Notes: The stars of Westwood and Storrs have been sporting beards skinny enough to be drawn on with a marker. The look seems to be working, though, as both Love and Price are All-America candidates.
Candy Stripers Tennessee/Indiana Classification: Warmup Pants Spotted: The layup line Notes: The Hoosiers have long been famous for their red-and-white, tear-off trousers, but the Vols -- also sponsored by Adidas -- got into the act this season, rocking throwbacks to the Ray Mears era.
Two-Tieing Van Chancellor, coach, LSU Classification: Neckwear Spotted: Feb. 25 vs. UConn Notes: Chancellor rocked a bow tie at the start of the Lady Tigers' loss to UConn, but ditched it at half for more traditional neckwear. "I will never wear another bow tie as long as I coach," he said.
High-Fashion Goggs Marcus Landry, 6-7 forward, Jr., Wisconsin Classification: Modern Rec Specs Spotted: Feb. 20 at Illinois Notes: Although I still prefer the yellow goggs worn by UCLA's Alfred Aboya earlier this season, Landry has a slick pair of Adidas specs. Basketball eyewear has come a long way since the days of Kurt Rambis.
Kissing Goodbye Drew Neitzel, 6-0 guard, Sr., Michigan State Classification: Center-court smooch Spotted: March 2 vs. Indiana Notes: Neitzel, as well as fellow senior Drew Naymick, made this parting gesture on their final trip off the court on the Spartans' Senior Day. The game itself was a laugher, as State routed Indiana, 103-74.
