What did Ennis do at the end of the first half? he dribbled down the court with minimal time ...jacked up a "prayer" and it barely missed.

Sooo...similar situation (albeit much more pressure) at the end of the game...nails it.

some guys just have the uncanny ability to hit these long shots at a greater than expected rate. Im not talking about "clutch"..im talking about the skill of hitting long distance shots...he seems to have that.

if you watch the replay of the final shot..that was not at all lucky..he was under control..hand under the ball..really good form...it was skill.
 
That shot was absolute skill. He was under control, got his feet squared, perfect arc on the ball. That was not a lucky shot.

Wow didn't even think about that, great points. This shot reminded me of the Ben Brust buzzer beater of last year and Evan Turner's buzzer against Mich in 2010. Both shots took some luck but not to mention a tremendous amount of skill to get a shot up even close to the rim. But you're it's too tough to call it luck when so little people could do it uncontested 10/10 times. I think Tyler could do it contested 3/10 so not much luck there if he could consistently do it like he nearly did in the first half.

That's a great point! It was almost like a practice swing in golf!

I noticed that to when I watched the replay again.
It wasn't one of those running heaves you see players often do - he did a jump stop, set his feet and launched an in control jump shot.
Best part was, when he did that stop, the Pitt players ran right past him giving him a nearly uncontested shot.
Tyler Ennis is definitely a special player.
