Halfway through its maiden voyage in the ACC, the Syracuse basketball team finds itself undefeated and ranked No. 1 in the country.
There have been dominating performances (Indiana, Villanova), nail-biters (St. Francis, Pittsburgh, Miami twice) and downright classics (Duke). And despite losing a starter to a season-ending injury, the Orange have kept rolling along.
