Duke's basketball team, for lack of a better term, is reeling. Monday's 64-62 loss to Syracuse was its third in a row and second straight at Cameron Indoor Stadium—skids that haven't occurred since the 2006-07 season.
That was also the last time the Blue Devils weren't ranked, a streak that figures to come to an end when next week's Associated Press Top 25 is released.
At 14-5 overall and 3-3 in the ACC, Duke is trending downward right before it sets out on a three-game road trip—the longest of its season—that begins Saturday at North Carolina State.
Is Duke headed for a lost season, or can it get things turned around before the ACC and NCAA tournaments in March? That's one of many burning questions it faces for the remainder of the 2015-16 season.
