Antonio “Scoop” Jardine a Philadelphia Local and graduate of Neumann-Goretti Highschool, has earned a lot of fans in his college basketball career at Syracuse University. The Philadelphia native is a player “transformed” after five years with the Orange, averaging 8.6 points, 2.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.5 steals this season.

One fan who’s especially sad to see “SCOOOOOOP!” leave this year is a 3-year-old boy who loves Orange basketball. His mother filmed him crying as he found out the upcoming NCAA Tournament would be Jardine’s last games with the team.

“Scoop Jardine‘s biggest little fan is sad after I told him this was Scoop’s last season,” YouTube user mommybean0317 wrote in the video description.
“I want Scoop on my team still,” the tearful little guy says.

“But he’s graduating,” Mom says.

Scoop himself watched the video and posted on Twitter, “Must watch!” with a link for his followers to see it, too. Teammate Griffin Hoffmann tweeted back, “I don’t want @ScoopJardine to leave either!!” with a couple sad-face emoticons.

A lot of SU fans likely share the boy’s sadness, as Scoop has proven to be a leader on the team his senior year. Jardine is sixth on the all-time Orange career assists chart and if he leads his team to the Final Four, you can expect thousands to share the little kid’s tearful lament.
