Barry Rohrssen is the newest UK men's basketball assistant and today he was introduced formally to the media at Memorial Coliseum.

Slice, as he's known by his peers and colleagues.

But where did the nickname even come from?  How did the Brooklyn boy and product of a single-parent home become 'The Slice?'

That answer, is Howard Garfinkle and the five-star basketball camp...the same camp Rohrssen met his now boss, John Calipari at some 30 years ago.

More from Rohrssen on his nickname in the video.
