Point guard Tyler Ennis recently shined at the National High School Invitational. His St. Benedict’s team advanced all the way to the finals and he hit a three with only 10 seconds left that put his team up by a point. A buzzer beater on the other end spoiled what would have been a brilliant finish by Ennis.
He wasn’t named to the McDonald’s All American game last week, but he is excited to show his skills at the Jordan Brand Classic this weekend.
“I’m ready to get out there and have fun,” Ennis told USATodayhss.com’s own Jason Jordan. “But definitely I’ll be looking to dominate. That’s just how I approach the game. I felt like I should’ve been in the McDonald’s game, but I’m happy to just be in this one. I’ll show them.”
Ennis probably wasn’t happy with the result in Bethesda, Maryland, but he should have no shame in how he performed. He and Isaiah Briscoe formed a backcourt that was truly fast and skilled. They deserved victory, but sometimes the ball just falls the other way.
It will be fun to watch Ennis in the Jordan Brand Classic, and he will likely be trying to prove his critics wrong in Brooklyn. Ennis will be quite a good college point guard as well and it was a pleasure watching him play all weekend.
