Iowa State player’s haircut shows he’s a real ball Hogue

Can 'do: Iowa State's Hogue and his haircut take a shot against UConn.

Iowa State forward Dustin Hogue has found a unique way to distinguish himself on the court. 

The 6-foot-6 junior was seen at the NCAA tournament with a snazzy haircut featuring his last name and his jersey number (22) on a basketball on the backside of his head. 

Hogue also emblazoned a "Y.O." on the left side of his noggin. It’s most likely a shout-out to his hometown of Yonkers, N.Y. — a short hop from Madison Square Garden, where the Cyclones played UConn in the Sweet 16 on Friday. 

Ultimately, though, Hogue’s fancy cut and even-more-impressive 34 points could not carry the Cyclones through to the Elite Eight, as Iowa State lost to UConn 81-76.
