Jardine brings scoop of flash to Orange
BUFFALO, N.Y. -- His coach calls Scoop Jardine's ad lib plays "boneheaded." Jardine prefers creative.
The Syracuse guard plays like a kid who earned his nickname on the playground -- two parts flash, one part dash with an assortment of twists, turns, hooks and scoops.
Except in Jardine's case, the nickname is the egg.
Or maybe it's the chicken.
Whatever, it predates Jardine's basketball repertoire by a good 21 years.
