The crowd at the Patriot Center here on the George Mason campus wasn’t treated to Dirk Nowitzki, but it didn’t seem to matter with JJ Barea on the floor. Led by the school’s band, chants of “Hair Gel” rained down every time Northeastern product Barea touched the ball.
“They said worse things when I was in college,” he pointed out.
It seems the second-year point guard had much longer hair during his collegiate days, and George Mason and Northeastern are rivals in the Colonial Athletic Conference. Gotta love college fans.
