Former Walbrook star Roscoe Smith is having a solid freshman season at Connecticut. A two-time Baltimore Sun All-Metro selection , Smith has averaged 6.7 points and 5.3 rebounds for the Huskies this season. But one of his highlights keeps showing up on "SportsCenter," and it's not for a good reason. Smith has been the reigning "worst of the worst" champion on ESPN since he missed a game-winning, buzzer-beating halfcourt heave against Texas two months ago. There's no shame in that, right?

It's not necessarily a nickname, but his trainer, high school and college coaches all refer to Smith in one way or another as the epitome of a "hard worker.
