Soon-to-be Syracuse Orange freshman Tyler Ennis continued to do his thing Friday scoring a team-high 25 points in Canada's 79-66 loss to Croatia in Game 2 of preliminary-round play at the U19 World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic.

In 37 minutes of playing time, Ennis hoisted up 25 shots and made 10 of them. He also collected four rebounds, dished out four assists, nabbed three steals and committed just one turnover.

Like Thursday's loss, Canada took an early advantage, leading in the second quarter, but could not hang on to it. Croatia took a 37-32 lead into halftime and never looked back.

In two games on the global stage, Ennis is averaging 22.5 points per game and is seemingly Canada's best player. The Ontario native is projected to be the Orange's starting point guard come this Fall, and so far he is showing why head coach Jim Boeheim is excited to have him.

On Saturday, Canada takes on Korea. Meanwhile, Team USA, the team Syracuse sophomore forward Jerami Grant was suppose to play for, cruised to a 88-29 victory over the Ivory Coast on Thursday. Friday night they take on China.
