Times are tough for Syracuse fans. The Orange, five weeks removed from an 18-1 record, are reeling when it matters most.
With Saturday's loss to Louisville, Syracuse has stumbled to three straight losses, surrendering its grip on a regular season conference title and a top seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Orange are just 4-6 since Jan. 21 and suddenly have the look of a one-and-done tourney team.
Consecutive home losses serve as salt in the wound of Syracuse fans. A team that previously won 38 straight contests at the Carrier Dome can't seem to solve its problems and Hall of Fame head coach Jim Boeheim is running out of time to right the ship.
The team rounds out its final Big East regular season with a pair of games this week (vs. DePaul, at Georgetown). Here are some issues Syracuse must address if it hopes to survive into late March.
