After an ugly finish to the regular season and ACC tournament, the Syracuse Orange are glad to turn the page and take on the challenge of the NCAA tournament.
A year ago, Jim Boeheim and Co. engineered a Final Four run based on the strength of the team's zone defense and pro-bound playmakers. This season, the zone is still there, but the backcourt has changed, and everyone's roles are a bit different.
Can 'Cuse get back on track after losing five of its past seven contests? Boeheim will turn to senior leader C.J. Fair and standout freshman Tyler Ennis to lead the troops in their quest to bring "Jimmy B" his second national title.
Syracuse's potential championship run begins in Buffalo, and its road to the Final Four would take them through Memphis and onto Arlington. So what do they need to do in order to win six in a row and take home the national title?
