With less than four minutes remaining in the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team’s win over the Oakland Golden Grizzlies on Wednesday night, Elijah Hughes curled around a screen set by Bourama Sidibe in the lane, received a pass from Joe Girard III, and then dished it to Sidibe, who was rolling to the basket. Although Oakland’s Brad Brechting blocked Sidibe’s lay-in attempt, the Orange center got his own offensive rebound and scored his only basket of the game on an uncontested layup to put the Orange up 70-60.
