PLAYERS: Scoop Jardine
TEAMS:
Syracuse point guard Scoop Jardine broke down when talking to reporters after Saturday's 77-70 loss to Ohio State in the NCAA Tournaments East Regional Finals.  Jardine told the media that he "thinks we (Syracuse) the best team in the country, for real!"  Scoop was reduced to tears when he was interviewed by SNY which is a local New York sports TV station.  In the clip, which you can view HERE; Jardine is reduced to tears as he is faced with the reality that he has played his last game for the Orangeman.  The good news for Jardine is that he is dating Michael Jordan's daughter Jasmine who is a freshamn at the Cuse.  With Jordan being the Charlotte Bobcats owner, maybe Scoop will land on the Bobcats next year.
