Kentucky's injured forward Willie Cauley-Stein has a little Dennis Rodman in him.
He proved as much earlier this season when he dyed his hair blonde for several games. He proved it again Monday night when he chose to wear a paisley Ralph Lauren polo under his jersey on the Kentucky bench during the national title game against UConn.
Cauley-Stein is injured and not able to play, but he still attracted attention early in the broadcast because of the shirt, which retails for $145.
Kentucky fell behind by double-digits in the first half against UConn and some Wildcats supporters took to Twitter to blame the poor start on Cauley Stein's choice of attire.
I'm blaming Cauley Stein's shirt for us being down. #uglyaspossible

Willey Cauley Stein's draft stock should go down for wearing that shirt.

Maybe Willie Cauley-Stein can buy Shabazz Napier some groceries if he can afford a $145 shirt to wear under his jersey... #finalfour
