Syracuse players walked onto the court for a Jan. 26 conference clash exuding confidence. The Orange were 18-1, unbeaten in the Big East and coming off consecutive wins over ranked opponents, including No. 1 Louisville. 

A game versus struggling Villanova (three straight losses) seemed to represent just another stepping stone toward a dominant season.

Jim Boeheim's squad lost more than a matchup that Saturday afternoon at Wells Fargo Center, home of the Wildcats and Philadelphia 76ers. Since suffering a 75-71 overtime defeat in Philly, Syracuse hasn't been the same team.

The Orange, then ranked No. 3 in the nation, are 4-5 in the last nine games. Monday night's loss at Marquette dropped them to 10-5 in conference play, two games back of first-place Georgetown in the loss column.

What's gone so wrong for the Orange? Let's attempt to uncover some of Syracuse's key concerns with an analysis of the recent slide.
