Tyler Ennis played some excellent basketball at the National High School Invitational and though his go ahead three pointer ended up being negated, it was still a special shot from a special young player. He even played through a shoulder injury which was impressive on his part. If he can continue to play effectively through injury in his career then he will have a truly special career. Ennis will be joining the Syracuse Orange next season and if next year’s draft class is as talented as it could be, then Ennis would be better served to stay at least two seasons in Syracuse. This would likely allow him to get drafted higher, but that is definitely not a guarantee. If he ends up having a truly spectacular season from a statistical and health perspective, then it might be smarter to come out this year. You never know though, and the Canadian will likely play things by ear.
Tyler Ennis is probably more of a 2-and-done so now Syracuse has Joseph who could learn under Ennis for a year in 2014

I’m sure head coach Jim Boeheim would not complain if Ennis stays more than one year, but we will just have to see what the young Canadian decides. Ennis could one day be on the Canadian Olympic team featuring Andrew Wigggins, but that is for another time and another place. In the meantime we will all just have to sate our palates with some college basketball.
