Everyone knows about Nolan Smith, but is he truly appreciated for the kind of season he is having in 2011?
He is having a monster season, averaging more than 20 points per game and leading the ACC in scoring and assists. No one has ever done that for a season.
Still, while he is mentioned in national discussions, he can get lost in the mix at times.
Many other teams throughout the country could reasonably boast the same thing about their under-appreciated or little-known stars.
Whether it is a player on a team outside of the mainstream or a player on a national power who is being overshadowed by a superstar, this list of players compiles some of the best you've never heard of or that have been lost in the shuffle.
