VP Joe Biden Congratulates Tyler Ennis

Tyler Ennis’ 35-foot game-winning 3-pointer reached all the way to the Vice President of the United States on Thursday.

Joe Biden, a Syracuse Law School alum, called Ennis to congratulate him on the game-winner in Syracuse’s 58-56 victory over Pittsburgh.

The above photo was Tweeted out by the VP’s official Twitter.

Biden is known to root for the Orange. His office previously Tweeted out this photo of him wearing a “Beat Duke” shirt.
