Highlight Moment:

Most people remember Ennis due to his game-winning shot against No. 25 Pittsburg on February 12 as the Orange mustered out a 58-56 victory on the road. Yet, Ennis had just 13 total points in that game, including that last-second three. Rather, the freshman’s best statistical game came early in the season against Cal. On November 26, Ennis posted a career-high 28 points on the Bears’ defense thanks to 9-of-12 shooting including 2-of-3 from long range. He also added four assists and three steals in that contest as Syracuse ran away with a 92-81 victory.

Quotes:

“Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim, rarely one to shower acclaim on his players, much less on freshmen, has been effusive in his praise of Ennis this season. ‘Tyler, for us, he's so valuable. He plays 40 minutes in the [ACC games]. We can't win a game without him. Literally,’ Boeheim recently told ESPN's Andy Katz. ‘If you talk about the best pro prospect (in the ACC), it's Jabari Parker, but who's the most valuable to his team? We don't have a point guard, I don't know where we would be without Tyler Ennis.’” – Peter Bukowski, SI.com

“The story of Syracuse's season is largely the tale of Tyler Ennis' emergence. He is the freshman who replaced NBA-bound Michael Carter-Williams, the only player capable of playing the point guard position on the Orange roster. He fared better than expected by most, and so did the Orange, winners of 25 straight games and, at one point, the No. 1 team in the country.” – Chris Carlson, Syracuse.com

“The consummate point guard showed how he was able to wreak havoc at the top of Syracuse's zone last year to the tune of 2.4 steals per 40 [possessions], as he posted a 6-7 ¼ wingspan. Ennis measured a 6-5 wingspan at the LeBron James and Deron Williams Camps in 2012. Although not quite as strong, the 6-2 ½ point guard compares physically to 2012 draftee and NBA standout Damian Lillard (6-2 ¾ in shoes, 189 pounds, 6-7 ¾ wingspan).” – DraftExpress.com
