NBA prospect Tyler Ennis scores amazing winner for Syracuse

Published Add your comment

In the world of basketball, there aren't many more thrilling ways to secure a win than with a last-second shot that drops just as the final buzzer sounds - leaving no time at all for the opposition to attempt to mount a comeback.

And that's exactly what happened at Petersen Events Center in Pennsylvania on Wednesday as the hometown Pittsburgh Panthers suffered a cruel late defeat at the hands of Syracuse.

On a night where Miami Heat superstar LeBron James also showed off his impressive credentials with a last-minute three-pointer to secure a late win against the Golden State Warriors, Syracuse freshman Tyler Ennis was busy displaying his own considerable talent with a 35-footer that gave the Orange a dramatic 58-56 win.

Down by a point with just 4.4 seconds left on the clock, Ennis - the talented guard - collected the ball from the inbound, immediately raced up the court and proceeded to drain a three to spark wild celebrations from players and coaches alike on the visiting bench.

The win improved no.1 Syracuse's record to 24-0, 11-0 ACC - can anyone beat them? And is Ennis a realistic prospect for his year's loaded NBA draft?
