The Style Archive, our museum of college hoops style, is in its third season on SI.com. We already have 107 exhibits on display from the past two seasons, and will be unveiling new batches throughout the tourney ...

Exhibits for '08-09: 1-5 | 6-11 | 12-16 | 17-21 | 22-26 | 27-31 | 32-36 | 37-41

Style24 42. By DeJuan's Early Light
DeJuan Blair, 6-7 forward, Soph., Pitt
Classification: National Anthem Pose
Spotted: All season long
Notes: Blair summons power from the Star Spangled Banner, raising his arms (and pointer fingers) to the sky during the song. (Or he's just telling everyone in the gym that he's the nation's No. 1 offensive rebounder.)
Style26

43. Cin City
C.J. Anderson, 6-6 guard/forward, Sr., Xavier
Classification: Shoe inscriptions
Spotted: March 20 vs. Portland State
Notes:
Anderson was born in Cincy and went to Winton Woods High before he headed off to Manhattan. Now at Xavier, he writes an ode to the Queen City -- "CinCinnati I do it 4 you" -- on his kicks during the tourney.

Style29 44. The Horace
Bryan Narcisse, 6-6 forward, Fr., Clemson
Classification: Rec specs
Spotted: March 19 vs. Michigan
Notes: Newer versions of rec specs have hit the market -- see Wisconsin's Marcus Landry for an example -- but Narcisse prefers to go old-school, looking somewhat like Horace Grant from the early-'90s Bulls.

45. Jonnycake
Jonny Flynn
, 6-foot guard, Soph., Syracuse
Classification:
Arm pad
Spotted:
Big East Tournament
Notes: Flynn wears a bandage filled with cornmeal flatbreads (or possibly standard padding) on his left arm. Initially it was there to protect a bruise, but now, he says, it's just there as a "little good luck charm."

Style31 46. Bald Eagles
Marquette Golden Eagles
Classification: All-team head shave
Spotted: March 19 vs. Utah State
Notes: Marquette's players -- including Dominic James, who was miraculously cleared to play in the second round despite having broken his foot in February -- Bic'd their domes as a sign of solidarity in the dance.
