DG169

Continuing our way too late look at the 2015-16 College Basketball season, in dread gallery #169 we'll begin taking a look at how the seniors did in the final year of their careers - and I'm talking about the seniors who had dreads throughout their careers, not the one-year wonders we saw in DG167. Then in the second half of DG169 we'll look at some players with dreads - most of them not seniors - who played on teams where at least two of their teammates also had dreads.


















1. He may not have been one of the best players with dreads, but Marshall G Justin Edmonds certainly was one of the players with the best dreads. Edmonds, a 6-4, 227-pounder, looks to makes his move against G Robert Hubbs (left photo) and defends a shot by G Kevin Punter (right photo) on Nov. 19 as Marshall, instead of playing a cupcake at home, opened the season with a tough road game against Tennessee. Edmonds finished with 11 points, 3 rebounds, and 5 assists in the Thundering Herd's 84-74 loss. He played 31 minutes that night; and apparently the coach staff must not have liked what they saw - because he didn't play more than 16 minutes in any game for the rest of the season. The Herd went on to lose their first 6 games before finally getting their 1st win on Dec. 9.
