Arguably nation’s most valuable freshman, Tyler Ennis leads No. 2 Syracuse | One And One -

As the Orange prepared to face former Big East foil and fellow ACC unbeaten Pittsburgh on Saturday, these very valid appreciations of Ennis’ calm and intelligence almost obscured his outsized production.

When scoring is required, he can, with his true shooting percentage – an efficiency measure taking into account three-pointers and free throws — at 52.6.
