March is generally the time of year to be peaking, not falling, and there seems to be a palpable sense of panic around the 'Cuse. Could they conceivably drop to a four-seed? What happened to Trevor Cooney's jumper? Can Boeheim right the ship? While the Orange is undeniably struggling, a lot can still happen between now and the tournament. Let's take a look at three reasons why we shouldn't panic.

From the opening tip, head coach Jim Boeheim's game plan became evident; the Orange were going to eliminate the high post catch and use their overwhelming length to force turnovers and keep Wisconsin off the glass. And, for the most part, it worked.

The Syracuse Orange entered the NCAA Tournament full of uncertainty with the loss of starting center Fab Melo to eligibility issues. After barely grazing past 16 seeded UNC Asheville in a shockingly close 72-65 win, such doubt has been fully validated. Once thought of as a legitimate national title contender thanks in large part to its normally suffocating 2-3 matchup zone, Syracuse looked rather ordinary defensively without the seven-foot Melo in the middle.
