UConn Vs. Syracuse: Struggling Huskies Visit No. 2 Orange

A lair of uncertainty surrounds the Connecticut Huskies men's basketball program like a bubble, but the college basketball schedule -- like time -- stops for no one. The Huskies visit No. 2 Syracuse on Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m. (CBS) looking to right the ship.

UConn coach Jim Calhoun is in the midst of a medical leave of absence. His team has lost five out of six contests. The Huskies are appealing an NCAA verdict to keep them out of the 2013 NCAA Tournament, and in the meantime, they might be playing their way out of this year's March Madness despite a stacked roster featuring two likely lottery picks. They fell at Louisville on Monday, 80-69, and those two aforementioned lottery picks -- Andre Drummond and Jeremy Lamb -- combined for seven points, all by Lamb.

Syracuse has won four straight since its lone loss of the season on Jan. 21. The Orange held on for a 64-61 overtime victory against rival Georgetown behind Kris Joseph's career-high 29 points.
