The Hoyas have 10 games left to provide a corrective element to their season. They will be favored in possibly five of the games: at home vs. Rutgers, Cincinnati and DePaul and on the road against South Florida and St. John’s.

The rest of the schedule is dependent upon which Hoyas surface - the team that won at UConn or the one in the throes of a slide.

For now, they live with the incriminating assessment that they are less than the sum of their parts. It is left to the Hoyas to show that the four-game losing streak was either a blip on their schedule or indicative of a team that failed to congeal as one.
