Gbinije moved primarily to the reserve guard position for his sophomore year at Syracuse, due to lack of guard depth on the team. He was the backup to point guard Tyler Ennis and shooting guard Trevor Cooney, occasionally also playing some time at forward. Gbinije was not much of a scoring threat when he was on the court, but he was able to run the offense, and play defense at the top of the zone as needed, giving the two starters a break when needed.

His last name was pronounced Ben-I-Zhay.
