How Far Will Syracuse Go In The NCAA Tournament

The Syracuse Orange started the 2013-14 season in historic fashion. Getting off to a 25-0 start and sitting as the unanimous No.1 in the AP poll, many thought this was going to be a Syracuse team that was destined for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

It’s amazing what can change in just one month.

Syracuse is 2-5 since a Feb. 19 loss to ACC bottomfeeder Boston College. Injuries to forward Jermai Grant and center Baye-Moussa ┬áKeita┬áhave certainly played a factor in their recently poor form. The awful shooting of Trevor Cooney isn’t helping. In the past 5 games Cooney has shot an abysmal 9-42 (21%) from downtown.

Not all is lost for the Orange though coming into this NCAA tournament. Syracuse received a No. 3 seed that finds them playing its first game right up I-90 in Buffalo. The Orange are now 100% healthy and the teams they will face have not played against a 2-3 zone like that Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim. If they can get Trevor Cooney in any type of groove Syracuse can find themselves battling for a spot in the Elite Eight — or more.

With Syracuse’s great start and recent struggles, how far do you have the Orange going in the tournament?
