Syracuse Orange

2012-13: 30-10 (11-7 Big East)
In-conference offense: 1.04 points per possession (5th, Big East)
In-conference defense: 0.97 points allowed per possession (5th, Big East)

Syracuse was a mediocre regular-season team in 2012-13, one that went 4-5 on the road in Big East play and lost two games to Georgetown by a combined total of 33 points. None of which mattered, of course, when April rolled around and the Orange were playing the Michigan Wolverines tight into the 40th minute of a national semifinal in Atlanta.
