Ennis Snubbed of ACC Rookie of the Week Honors


Syracuse freshman Tyler Ennis has been impressive all season, including in this Sunday’s win against St. John’s. Apparently his performance wasn’t good enough to win the ACC Rookie of the Week.

Roddy Peters, a 6’3″ guard for the University of Maryland, won the award after scoring a total of 16 points, eight assists and six turnovers in two games this week. 14 of those points came in a conference matchup against Boston College. Ennis, who received the honor on December 2nd, scored 21 points on 5-12 shooting and went 10-10 from the free throw line. He also added six assists and three rebounds with only two turnovers in the 68-63 win for the Orange at Madison Square Garden. It seems as though Ennis had the better week, but voters gave the nod to Peters.

We will have to wait and see who the better of the two is on February 24th, when the Terrapins head to the Carrier Dome to face the Orange.
