SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Freshman point guard Tyler Ennis of top-ranked Syracuse is basking in some praise after his game-winning shot against Pittsburgh.
Vice President Joe Biden called Ennis on Thursday to congratulate him on his ''amazing 35-foot buzzer beater'' that kept the Orange unbeaten. The vice president's office tweeted a photograph of Biden at his desk while on the phone with Ennis. Biden received his law degree from Syracuse University.
Ennis took an inbounds pass with 4.4 seconds left on Wednesday night, dribbled into Pittsburgh territory and split two defenders before launching a high, arcing shot that swished as time expired. It gave Syracuse a 58-56 victory, a school-record 24th win in a row.
