Unlikely? You Bet!
According to a Sporting News college basketball yearbook I purchased a couple of years ago, Roscoe Smith was a likely All-Big Ten Rookie pick. My roulette bet on number 31 and a pair of $10 sports wagers during my lone trip to Vegas notwithstanding, I am not much of a gambler. Having said that, in 2010 I would have bet the farm that Smith would not make the All-Big Ten rookie team. Why? Simple. At the time, Smith played for the University of Connecticut, which is in the Big East Conference. (He transferred to UNLV earlier this year.) "Bettor" luck next time, Sporting News editors.
