Life hasn't been great lately for Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim.

Boeheim's Syracuse Orange have dropped four straight since starting the season 18-0, and tonight won't be an easy task either as the 17th ranked Orange travel to #7 Connecticut. 

That's one of eight games tonight involving ranked teams. There's another Big East matchup as Marquette travels to #12 Villanova, Duke tries to bounce back from its surprising loss to St. John's when they travel to Maryland.  #6 San Diego State has a tough test at Colorado State, #9 BYU is at Wyoming.  In the Big XII, #15 Missouri is at slumping Oklahoma State.  #20 Minnesota travels to Bloomington to take on Indiana, and in the WAC, Nevada is at #21 Utah State.

In the SEC tonight, South Carolina is at LSU, Mississippi State travels to Alabama and Georgia is in Fayetteville to take on Arkansas.

No men's action until tomorrow night in the Sun Belt, but in women's play tonight, South Alabama is at Western Kentucky, Louisiana-Monroe takes on East leader Middle Tennessee, and UALR, the Belt's only unbeaten team in conference play, plays host to Denver.
