Watch out folks, ’cause lake hair is caring these days.
On Monday night, John Robic’s blonde locks sat in for Coach Cal on the call-in show and had some interesting insight into the team’s progression. When asked which player would benefit most from Camp Cal, the Cats’ daily conditioning session, Robic mentioned Jon Hood as one of the team’s most improved players as of late. According to Robic, Hood had the best practice of anyone on the team on Sunday, hustling and drilling almost all of his shots.
Against Samford, Hood hit two three pointers in the last minute, giving him a much-needed confidence boost that didn’t go unnoticed by Calipari, who sent this tweet out on Friday:
So proud to see @hoodyhood4 playing with confidence again. I’m also proud of the friendship he’s developed with Scott Schaefer.

Yes, good performance in practice doesn’t always equal good performance in games (see: Matt Pilgrim). And while it’s pretty obvious at this point that Hood will never be a starter or even a sixth man, could Hood’s improvement in practice earn him more than clean-up minutes?
