Flaws and uncharacteristic errors too much to overcome

Syracuse has battled through a lot of adversity this year. I’m not even talking about the various scandals. I’m talking about on the court. Certain players have gone through dismal stretches. They’ve been out-rebounded, out-hustled, shoot poorly from the free throw line, struggled offensively, but they have always found a way to win nearly every time. Against Cincinnati they certainly had their chances but some glaring faults they’ve had all season combined with uncharacteristic play was just too much to overcome.
