BROOKLYN — After a play he wished he’d get back, Buddy Boeheim stretched the ball overhead, pounded it to the ground and tossed it to the referee. A chaotic scene began with a Brycen Goodine turnover after the freshman tried to break the Penn State press with his dribble. But hand-fighting knocked the ball loose, and when the ball rolled to Elijah Hughes in the paint, he spotted three Penn State defenders out of position. So, he sprinted. Hughes passed the ball up the court and into the hands of Buddy who found the shot he wanted. “I got a little excited to shoot it,” Buddy said after the game. He leapt before he gathered, and the ball slipped from his hands and then right back into them. A play to continue the momentum was wasted with a travel.“I don’t know how that happened,” Buddy said.The play was just one of SU’s (4-3, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) several mishaps in a transition game that for much of the night was lopsided. Penn State (6-1) scored 19 points in transition and took advantage of SU’s poor positioning off misses to outnumber the Orange running down the floor. When spots opened up for Syracuse to speed up the pace on its own, sloppy play stopped runs before they occurred and hampered the Orange toward a second-straight double-digit loss. This time, it was an 85-64 defeat to the Nittany Lions in the NIT Season Tip-Off at the Barclays Center.Early in the season, Syracuse thrived when it could control the pace and set up its offense to run plays in the half-court. Buddy converted frequently off screens, but when he caught the ball in stride after sprinting from the backcourt, his misses fired long. At the time, Buddy prescribed transition play as one of SU’s earliest issues. It was minimized by Syracuse’s ability to set the pace of early nonconference games, but something that would weigh far more when it couldn’t.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Nittany Lions tempted the Orange into quick cuts and runs from the opposite end of the court. They employed a full court press — like Oklahoma State two days prior — so SU tried to break it with quick passes up the court, which sometimes led to open shots. Though the press didn’t lead to any quick turnovers, it caused an imbalance for shooters already trying to claw their way back from a quick 15-point deficit.Early in the first half, Syracuse swiftly passed the ball up the floor and Hughes sprinted out in front of PSU defenders. Needing a big play, Hughes floated to the corner and quickly fired while his momentum faded him toward the baseline. When the shot rimmed out, Syracuse’s quick movement ahead had left multiple Penn State players lagging behind, now open in SU’s backcourt. “If you can’t convert in transition,” Hughes said, “you got to sprint back.”The shooting struggles for Syracuse continued, and the Nittany Lions utilized a 29-rebound advantage to continually push forward. The Orange struggled to keep up with Penn State’s speed down the floor, and when it did get back, SU often fouled. Transition play briefly erupted the Orange, who tied the game on quick plays up the floor out of halftime. Marek Dolezaj began to push the ball up the floor off rebounds, and Syracuse made quick cuts to the rim that ended in quick buckets or quick fouls. To complete a seven-point comeback after halftime, Joe Girard III found Hughes for a breakaway dunk. “I mean, it felt (within) six points for like 10 minutes there,” Buddy said.But the good fortune didn’t last, and Syracuse got lost within its own speed. With the game still in reach, Girard dove to the floor and knocked away a bounce pass. He popped up, caught an outlet and burst up the floor. Quincy Guerrier arced out to the wing. He pointed his finger in the air. “Up,” Guerrier yelled.Girard waited, but as Guerrier cut in, he tossed a line drive behind Guerrier and out of bounds. Girard clapped his hands together. Guerrier turned toward the freshman point guard and pointed his finger in the air once more, but Girard looked down. Another chance halted, Girard gingerly strolled to the bench.

WEEK 14 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerAnother good matchup comes in the form of the Dolphins for Ryan Griffin. Miami hasn’t actually been terrible against tight ends this season, but the overall possibility of points for the Jets (assuming they rebound from a stinky Week 13) mean Griffin and his usual red-zone looks should pay off for you. And PPR owners should also have taken notice of Dallas Goedert by now, who, even with the return of Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor saw at least six targets for the third straight week. He’ll take on a Giants defense vulnerable to allowing big offensive days in Week 14.WEEK 14 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiverOther names to consider this week include one of our favorites, Jonnu Smith, against the Raiders, along with Mike Gesicki at the Jets and Higbee versus the Seahawks. Gesicki has turned into Ryan Fitzpatrick’s second-favorite target, while Higbee has filled in admirably for Everett. Smith benefits from the placement of Delanie Walker (ankle) on Injured Reserve. All could start at TE for you in a pinch and be solid streaming options (along with the better ones mentioned above) if Hooper and Engram remain out.MORE WEEK 14:Waiver pickups | FAAB planning | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff SOSReminder: Check back for updates during the week. For individual tight end analysis, click here. The tight end position could be bolstered just in time for the fantasy football playoffs by the returns from injury of Gerald Everett (knee), Austin Hooper (knee), and Evan Engram (foot), but even without them, the Week 14 PPR TE rankings are pretty strong because of solid players and sleepers with favorable matchups.Of course, there’s Jack Doyle, the rare free agent add who actually delivered on his hype. He takes on the second-worst defense against tight ends, the Buccaneers, and should continue his high-volume PPR ways whether T.Y. Hilton (calf) is back or not. Then you have Vance McDonald against the Cardinals. After Tyler Higbee set his career-high for receiving yards in the first half against Arizona in Week 13, you can’t consider sitting McDonald unless you have one of the top-tier studs.
