Just when it looked like the top-ranked Syracuse Orange would suffer their first defeat of the season, as well as their top ranking, they got the biggest play of the years from one of their stars, freshman Tyler Ennis, to give them the 58-56 win over the Pittsburgh Panthers and save the season.
With time running off the clock and down 56-55, the inbound pass went to Ennis who took it all the way down the floor as far as he could, and launched the desperation three-pointer to give the Orange the win and keep them undefeated on the season.
Ennis finished the night with night with 13 points, two rebounds and five assists, but there was nothing bigger that he did tonight than hitting the shot to keep the undefeated season alive.
With the win, the Syracuse Orange move to 24-0 on the season as they look to complete their first year in the ACC with an unblemished record.
Pitt drops to 20-5 on the season with the loss, the second loss of the season to this Syracuse team.
