SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Syracuse freshman point guard Tyler Ennis is entering the NBA draft. Ennis, from Brampton, Ont., made the announcement Thursday in an email from the university. "Id like to thank coach (Jim) Boeheim, the coaching staff, my teammates and the amazing fans of Syracuse for the opportunity to play at a great university like Syracuse," Ennis said in the statement released by the school. "I feel this experience has helped prepare me to fulfil my lifelong dream -- to play in the NBA." Ennis finished second on the Orange in scoring at 12.9 points per game and averaged 5.5 assists to go with 1.7 turnovers, one of the top assist-to-turnover marks in the nation. "He sat down with us and we talked about it," Enniss father, Tony McIntyre, said Thursday. "He feels like hes in a good place in the draft. There are not too many point guards and he feels that he can be valuable to a team in this years draft." McIntyre said the family spoke with Boeheim before announcing the decision. "He just said hed be there to help Tyler in anything he needs," McIntyre said. The six-foot-two, 180-pound Ennis displayed an uncanny calmness for a freshman in leading the Orange to a school-record 25 wins to start the season and a No. 1 ranking for three weeks. Enniss three-pointer at the buzzer beat Pittsburgh in mid-February. He took the teams last shot of the season, missing a three from the top of the key at the final horn in a 55-53 loss to Dayton in the third round of the NCAA tournament last Saturday night in Buffalo, N.Y. Syracuse finished 28-6. "He did a great job here," Boeheim told The Post-Standard of Syracuse. "Were very proud of him. Well move on." One of those who wasnt surprised was Mark Taylor, Enniss coach at St. Benedicts Prep in New Jersey. "Hes going to be a lottery pick. My gut would have been two (years at Syracuse)," Taylor told The Associated Press at midseason. "The numbers hes putting up, its going to be hard for him not to go. Hes going to be forecast to go so high in the draft, he might have to go just because its so much money." Ennis joins Carmelo Anthony and Donte Greene as the only Syracuse players to enter the NBA after their freshman season. Still, it wont be so easy to leave. "Its hard because he loves Syracuse," McIntyre said. "He loves playing there, he loves the fans, he loves his teammates, and he loves coach -- all the coaches. Thats the hard part, but, you know, when youre a little kid and you play basketball, you want to play in the NBA. "I think that part makes it somewhat easier because the reality of it is hes got the shot to do that this year." Stephen Curry Grey Jersey . The team says Paul is day to day and is questionable for Mondays game against New Jersey. Paul is averaging 18.0 points, 8.4 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 37.3 minutes in nine games for the Clippers, who beat Miami and the Lakers in their last two games. Klay Thompson Jersey .

"Big hits," he said. "Im all about hitting. I dont care who it is." Thats what the Houston Texans are counting on from the South Carolina defensive end after skipping a chance to take a quarterback -- their top need -- with the top pick Thursday night. Andre Iguodala Jersey . A year ago, as newly appointed general manager Masai Ujiri bided his time and sat out of a lacklustre 2013 draft, this scenario seemed highly improbable. The Raptors, like every other team in the association, had at least one eye on this years rookie crop, one of the most highly touted and eagerly anticipated ever to enter the league.
