Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim will be on hand to watch Tyler Ennis at the Nike EYBL circuit.

Boeheim recently spoke with Ennis on the phone.

“He told me he’s going to be there this weekend at all of our games to show how dedicated he is and everything like that,” Ennis said. “It feels good to have a Hall of Fame coach coming out to your games to watch you and show interest in you.”

Ennis, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound Toronto native and St. Benedict's point guard, plans to play with Canada in the FIBA U18 World Championships, which will be held June 16-20 in Sao Sebastiao do Paraiso, Brazil.
