We’re not sure we’ve seen anyone in the ACC lately with a purer understanding of the game, or who was more of a winner, than Syracuse’s Tyler Ennis. He was stone cold brilliant.

We hated that he only stayed one year and as it turns out, his talent is slightly under the NBA minimum so he’s playing overseas now.

That may be over too as Ennis suffered what looks to be an absolutely devastating leg injury. Whenever you see players on the court covering their eyes you have a pretty good idea that things have gone full Theismann/Livingston.

Best of luck to him. We hope that he can recover and continue to play.
