PHILADELPHIA - Known as one of the most dangerous fast break teams in the country, the Syracuse men's basketball team is looking to "break" back out after getting slowed down over the past several games.

Through its first 14 games this season the Orange was averaged 14.6 fast break points per game, but over its last six that average is just 5.7 and in two of the past three games SU has only scored two fast break points. The most obvious problem is rebounding as Syracuse has been beaten on the boards in three of the six games including a 50-41 margin at Villanova. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
