No. 4 Syracuse Orange

Record: 26-9. How they got here: At-large bid. Strengths: Forward C.J. Fair is the top scoring threat for Syracuse, which excelled when its 2-3 zone defense was sharp. Weaknesses: The Orange looked vulnerable in Big East play, with a shooting slump contributing to the end of a 38-game home winning streak.Elsa, Getty Images
