In one of the best matchups so far this NCAA basketball season, Syracuse and Villanova will square off in upstate New York on Saturday.

Canadians will be paying extra attention, because two of the finest young players this country has produced will be squaring off.

The McIntyre-Ennis household of Brampton will be paying especially close attention, since those two players are brothers Tyler and Dylan Ennis.

Tyler, about two-and-a-half years younger than Dylan, is the lead guard on the No. 2-ranked Orange and is in the midst of a monster freshman season, showing none of the typical first-year jitters.

After playing high school ball in New Jersey, where he earned state player of the year recognition last season, the younger Ennis has averaged 12.1 points, 5.4 assists (against just 1.2 turnovers), 3.3 rebounds and 2.8 steals, shooting 42% from the field (43.5% from three-point range).
