Just-In'Love

How we missed this, we do not know: Siena's men's basketball team has a player named Just-In'Love Smith.

Really. Smith's a senior walk-on from East Greenbush. He told ESPN last fall that his mom named him Just-In'Love because she was "just in love with me." He told TWC sports in December that he loves his name:

Name aside, Smith is not a typical college basketball player. He's 26 and has already served four years in the military -- one of those in Iraq.

Smith has appeared in three games for the Saints this season (for six minutes) and has scored 4 points.

By the way: after having a rough time with its non-conference schedule, Siena has been ripping up the MAAC. The Saints are 8-0 in conference. They're next at against Loyola tomorrow night.

Comments

And he said: "Son, this world is rough and if a man's gonna make it, he's gotta be tough. And I knew I wouldn't be there to help ya along. So I give ya that name and I said goodbye. I knew you'd have to get tough or die. And it's the name that helped to make you strong."

this place is a great example of young entrepreneurs seeing a market unfufilled and doing what they can to improve their city. ethical, absolutely delicious, not overpriced (especially for quality, everything fresh and handmade). right off the bat they have a variety of options to satisfy everyone, including the gluten free crowd, salads, daily soups, etc. refreshing change of pace from how many different assorted asian restaurants. personally hoping to see this place grow into something really special. ...
