SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Heading into the stretch run of the season, Syracuse is in deja vu mode.
The Orange (3-4, 2-1 Big East) are coming off a big win over UConn at home last Friday night and have five games remaining to put a positive stamp on the season.
A year ago, Syracuse routed highly ranked West Virginia at home on a Friday night to reach 5-2, then proceeded to lose its five remaining games to finish at 5-7 and miss the postseason.
The Orange is determined to avoid a repeat performance.
Head coach Doug Marrone says it's way too early to think of a turnaround to the season. The Orange plays at South Florida (2-5, 0-3) on Saturday night, the first of four road games in five weeks to close the season.
