Mark Konezny/USA TODAY SportsTyler Ennis continues to be a great floor leader for Syracuse.Each week we release the Freshman Tracker -- and each week there are new names and movement.
Andrew Wiggins slid back into the top five this week (even after another inconsistent week), while another one of the elite frosh slipped out of the top five.
Check back each week as we’ll have updates on how the top freshmen did on the floor and give you the rundown on the top first-year players in the country in a season in which the young guys wasted little time taking center stage.
Here is our updated ranking of the 10 best freshmen in college basketball.
1. Tyler Ennis, PG, Syracuse Orange
6-foot-2, 180 pounds
He continues to be steady and lead his team to win after win. Ennis had 18 points, five boards and four assists in a win at Wake and then scored 14 points, dished out nine assists and committed just two turnovers in a 40-minute effort in the overtime victory over Duke at the Carrier Dome. He ranks among the nation’s best in assist-turnover ratio at nearly 4-to-1.
