NEW YORK - Standing in the spacious New York Knicks locker room at Madison Square Garden sporting a long-sleeved "Team Jardine" T-shirt, Scoop Jardine appeared to be leading three teams into March Madness. There were his family and friends wearing "Team Jardine" attire whenever and wherever he takes the court; his second-ranked Syracuse (31-2), a No. 1 seed in the East in the NCAA tournament field; and his "Team Philly" mates. Jardine, a fifth-year senior who played at Neumann-Goretti High, is part of that last team along with sophomore Dion Waiters, his cousin, who starred at Life Center Academy in Burlington, N.J., and freshman Rakeem Christmas, a McDonald's All-American from Academy of the New Church.

SCOOP JARDINE'S timing could not have been worse. The former Neumann-Goretti and Syracuse guard was scheduled for surgery Tuesday in Los Angeles after breaking his right foot during a workout with the Utah Jazz last Friday, his final workout scheduled before Thursday's NBA draft. Jardine, already a longshot to be drafted, landed on the foot of Mississippi State guard Dee Bost. "I came down and it just popped," Jardine told the Syracuse Post-Standard. "I tried to finish the workout, and I couldn't put any pressure on it. They shut me down.

It's Syracuse-Villanova at the Wells Fargo Center tonight. A month ago, these teams were a combined 34-1. Since then, they are 9-11. Such is life in the Big East. It is such a slog that both needed OT Saturday to win against teams (DePaul and Rutgers) that are 5-23 in the league. Syracuse had to watch an attempted Rutgers game-winner miss at the end of regulation. The only time Rutgers ever won at Syracuse was in 1975 - Jim Boeheim was not yet the coach and they were still playing home games at Manley Field House.

AS HAS BEEN anticipated, Neumann-Goretti product Tony Chennault appears close to transferring to Villanova, sources said. An official announcement could come in the next few days. The 6-2 guard recently decided to leave Wake Forest after two seasons to be closer to home because his mother, Crystal Mortan, has been experiencing health problems. He is petitioning the NCAA for a hardship waiver, which would allow him to become eligible immediately. But sources have indicated that Chennault likely will end up with the Wildcats, which was his second choice coming out of high school, even if he has to sit out a season.

Syracuse freshman point guard Scoop Jardine, a former star at Neumann-Goretti High, is expected to come off a suspension and play today against Villanova at the Wachovia Center, sources said yesterday. Jardine, who was suspended indefinitely last weekend for violating university policy, missed two games but practiced with the team Thursday and yesterday. Jardine made the trip south with his teammates after yesterday's practice. Sources said he would play today although he would not start.

Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim knows he needs his two seniors to step up to keep winning in the NCAA tournament. Kansas State, the team the Orange will face Saturday in the third round of the East Regional in Pittsburgh, will need another big contribution from a freshman point guard to advance. Both teams, though, will need better shooting to make it to the tournament's second week. Syracuse joined a list of No. 1 seeds who have been scared in the first round by a No. 16 seed, but the Orange used a late 8-0 run, big plays and free throws from seniors Kris Joseph and Scoop Jardine in the final four minutes to beat North Carolina-Asheville, 72-65, on Thursday.

There's nothing like the home court advantage in college basketball, unless you play in the Big East. Of 33 games to date, the visitors have won 19 (.576), the 19th time being Pitt's victory over Villanova on Wednesday night at the Pavilion. Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin, whose team is 3-0 on the road, said the fact that six teams play home games off campus in large arenas waters down the home edge, and that the league's veteran officials aren't influenced by the partisan crowds. "There will be ebbs and flows to that," Cronin said.

He's listed as a 6-foot-3 senior point guard, but Vaux's Rysheed Jordan is much more, Kamal Yard said. Jordan can be anything you want him to be. "He can be a scorer, a playmaker, a slasher, he can even be a floor general," said Yard, who is the director of Philly Pride, Jordan's AAU team. For the University of Maryland, Jordan may be lining up to be a pretty nice consolation prize. The Terrapins lost out Thursday on heralded Texas twins Andrew and Aaron Harrison, as they opted for Kentucky.

When South Philadelphia's Scoop Jardine hit the practice court at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine for his 76ers predraft workout Sunday morning, the former Syracuse point guard brought along a whole lot of city history. Jardine, a Neumann-Goretti standout, has turned over the next stage of his career to Jerome "Pooh" Richardson, the former Ben Franklin High star. Richardson, the first draft pick in the history of the Minnesota Timberwolves (1989), had a 10-year NBA career.

BOSTON - Most of the thoughts in his head, Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim could have spoken at halftime. He saw an opportunity that had passed. A ticket to the Final Four had gone with it. Ohio State's star big man, Jared Sullinger, spent most of the half on the bench with two fouls. The Buckeyes just aren't that potent an offensive force without him. Syracuse couldn't take advantage, and back at full strength, No. 2 seed Ohio State won the East Regional at TD Garden and advanced to the Final Four for the first time since 2007 by knocking off the top-seeded Orange, 77-70.

BOSTON - The brightest lights always attracted him. "You're playing in front of 30,000 fans - on a low night, 25,000," Syracuse point guard Scoop Jardine said Friday about the huge crowds at the Carrier Dome. "When I first went to the Dome, it was the first time I ever signed an autograph. It was all she wrote right there for myself. " Now a senior, about to face Ohio State Saturday in an NCAA East Regional final at TD Garden, Jardine hasn't tired of the spotlight. "I go everywhere," Jardine said of all the attention on Syracuse basketball.

The NCAA tournament is all about 68 teams trying to be the one that cuts the nets down as the clock strikes midnight following the championship game. But for the Big East Conference, it's a chance to prove to the world that, although it's changing teams faster than clouds change patterns in the sky, it remains the nation's best basketball league. In Thursday night's regional semifinals in Boston and Phoenix, the Big East saw two representatives knock off teams from the Big Ten, the conference which spent a lot of the regular season making a great case for why it was the No. 1 league.
