WASHINGTON (AP) - Syracuse never really did show up the last time it played at the site of this week's NCAA tournament East Regional.
The Orange dropped their Big East regular-season finale here against Georgetown three weeks ago, scoring their fewest points in a half-century.
Since then, No. 4 seed Syracuse has won five of its last six games to join No. 1 Indiana - its opponent Thursday - plus No. 2 Miami and No. 3 Marquette to form the only group of 1-4 seeds left in any region this year.
It's only the 15th time since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985 - and first since 2009 - that the four highest seeded teams reached a region's semifinals, STATS LLC says.
No Florida Gulf Coasts in this crowd.
