Syracuse star Tyler Ennis gets a call from VP Joe Biden after game-winning shot (Photo)

While Syracuse Orange freshman Tyler Ennis has been making some big plays this year for his undefeated squad, none were any bigger than the buzzer-beating, 35-foot three-pointer he made on Wednesday night to keep the team undefeated by defeating the Pittsburgh Panthers.

No doubt, the shot had Syracuse alumni all over the country very happy as their Orange are running roughshod through the ACC in their first season as a member, and that includes current Vice President of the United States of America, Joe Biden, who received his law degree from the university.

Actually, it made him so happy that he felt it necessary to call Ennis personally to congratulate him on the accomplishment.


Can you imagine getting a phone call from the Vice President of the United States as just a freshman in college?

If you were wondering, you can just ask Ennis.
