They say that all good things come to an end.
Unfortunately, barring future scheduling or NCAA tournament appearances, this Wednesday night will be the last time the UConn Huskies (16-6, 6-4 Big East) and Syracuse Orange (20-3, 8-2 Big East) meet for some time.
The Orange are leaving the Big East Conference after this season to join the ACC, while the Huskies' future remains in a state of flux.
UConn has overachieved this season under first-year coach Kevin Ollie, but face no easy task in facing a Syracuse team that has been picked by many an observer as a Final Four contender.
To say this is a monumental task would be generous for a Huskies team that has made great strides but hasn't yet shown they can compete on this level.
These, then, are the five keys for UConn to pull a season-defining upset of Syracuse.
