When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade.
When life hands you the Orange, you make room for some postgame festivities.
After dropping three games in a row, No. 16 Syracuse is giving opponents no reason to think otherwise.
Syracuse (22-7, 10-6 Big East) has not won a game since February 20, when it routed Providence, 84-59. In the 10 days following that win, the Orange were taken out by Georgetown, Marquette and Louisville.
With Georgetown (23-4, 13-3) three games ahead in the conference standings and only two games left on the schedule, the Orange are out of contention for the Big East regular-season title. Consequently, Syracuse's focus is now preparing for the postseason.
Syracuse has DePaul (11-18, 2-14) and No. 5 Georgetown left before the Big East Tournament starts. While Syracuse should win the DePaul game, a win is only part of what Syracuse needs to right its ship.
From poor shot selection to costly turnovers, the Orange have given their fans much to complain about. The Orange started the season 18-1, highlighted by a road win against then-No. 1 Louisville, but have gone 4-6 since. Each loss has given a glimpse into the different woes of the Orange, with many questions unanswered.
Let’s take a look at the biggest questions Syracuse has presented as March barrels forward.
