Tyler Ennis is the hottest name in college basketball at the moment, after hitting a 35-foot buzzer beater against Pittsburgh to keep the Orange undefeated. Syracuse is, no doubt, looking to capitalize and sell some Tyler Ennis jerseys in the process.
The only problem is they cannot market and sell the jersey as Tyler Ennis’ — it’s a number on a Syracuse jersey and nothing more. Advertising it as Ennis’ jersey is against NCAA rules.
Realizing their err, the Syracuse twitter account has since deleted the tweet, but Mark Ennis screen captured an image of it:
Of course, everyone knows it’s Ennis’ jersey — just like those who purchase a No. 23 North Carolina jersey know it’s Michael Jordan — but Syracuse cannot explicitly market it as such.
