SI.com: Do you think [Ennis will] turn pro after the season is over? Boeheim: I don't think so. I think he knows and his father knows that he's a really good college player. He has to become a better shooter and get stronger to go to the next level. He'd go in the first round, but look at the number of first-round picks who are already out of the league in the last two years. It's a huge number.
The final tally shows only a 15-13 Syracuse advantage at the X, but the Orange dominated possession early on, leading to eight first-quarter goals. SU went on to cruise to a blowout victory.

"For the most part when I was in those living rooms, I had no contact, hadn't talked to Doug, hadn't talked to anybody from the staff at that point," Moore said. "So I really didn't know. I had heard swirlings and things, but there was no concrete evidence or any concrete conversations that said that I wouldn't be at Syracuse."
"We have the No. 1 team in the country (Syracuse). We have Virginia, who is having a hell of a year. I don’t know, I think ours matches up with anybody. We just have 15. That’s a lot. Someone is going to lose."
"I didn’t see it coming," senior C.J. Fair said, a common refrain among the team. "I knew he was good, but I didn’t know he’d be this good. He plays calm. He doesn’t get sped up by anybody. That’s one thing you don’t see a lot, especially in young players. He sees plays develop before they happen. You can’t teach that.
