As a loyal Syracuse fan since the mid-1980's I can say that 2011 has not brought much joy to the Orange basketball team. If one only rewinds back to early January they would find a much different outlook for the team that was 4-0 in the Big East including victories over Notre Dame and St. John’s to start the New Year. However, then as the schedule and the teams got tougher the Orange got squeezed. The overall results were as gaugy as the snowfall totals with SU concluding January with four straight losses; the futility continuing to spread into February. No one was prepared for this drastic shift downward in both team moral and gameplay with the exception of Jim Boeheim. The Hall of Fame Coach reiterated the fact that this year’s team hadn’t been tested and weren’t as good as their record would seem to indicate. Despite his team's impressive 18-0 start which saw them rise as high as #3 in the Nation, Boeheim was quick to dismiss thoughts of a #1 Seed or the notion that this year's team was better than last year’s. According to Jim the expectations placed on SU's team last season were warranted and deserved. Fans and critics alike strongly believe that barring a key injury (Onuaku) that they would have reached the Final Four, and possibly even played for a National Championship. He was wary of their early season success and knew that the Big East would provide the barometer as to how good they really were, and then those questions about the team would answer themselves. The 2005 Basketball HOF Inductee knew that the Big East would be a monster conference again this year, and that parity would reign supreme further blurring the line between the top and bottom tiers of the league. Boeheim almost seemed to predict his own team's collapse or rather a crash back to reality. However, I doubt he expected things to get this bad so quickly. There’s little doubt that the Syracuse Orange have struggled lately, and the loss on Saturday to Louisville 73-69 just added insult to injury. The psyche of this team is at a low point, and they haven’t been able to find the answers. This latest loss made it their 6th L in their last 8 games, and yet the team doesn't seem to be responding to Boeheim's challenges in the same way that SU teams of the recent past have. These players seem too caught up in their own media hype and seem more preoccupied with their dunk or pass being a highlight on ESPN’s SportsCenter. They also tend to display their emotions more visibly than past teams whether they are positive or negative and it is impacting the decision making ability often in key moments. Their opponents seem to be feeding off the general lack of enthusiasm that has seemed to plague the ‘Cuse during this losing streak. There have been too many uncharacteristic mental lapses, lack of focus, and overall effort plays to list. These sudden hiccups tending to occur at the most inopportune portions of games, and unfortunately there isn’t one culprit to blame. The entire team has to take the blame and learn from their mistakes so they aren’t repeated. One of these reasons has to lie in the lack of experience in certain players positions in the 2-3 Zone. The biggest issue in this Zone right now lies in the middle, where they have asked Freshmen Fab Melo and Baye Moussa-Keita to replace one of the great defenders in Senior Arinze Onuaku. Fab Melo doesn't have the conditioning nor experience at this time to be effective in the middle and his lack of activity and discipline has shown. Boeheim doesn't trust Fab at this time for more than a handful of sparse minutes. I feel that the fan expectations on the big man are unfair and unrealistic. His conditioning will improve, but not until the Offseason, and he will develop into a force if he stays in College for several years. This year is definitely a development year as far Jim and his coaching staff is concerned, but the trouble also lies at the top of the Zone. Keita is a threat defensively with the ability to alter shots, but his lack of offensively skills has stalled the offense on occasions where he needs to keep a defense honest. The guards are not as active and the zone lacks the fire and intensity of last year's team. They often defend with their hands down making it easy for opponents to shoot over them and hit a high percentage of their shots.
