Fab Melo Ruled Ineligible for NCAA Tournament

There’s not many details right now, but Syracuse sophomore Fab Melo will not play in the NCAA Tournament. Melo missed three games earlier this season, with the team going 2-1 during his absence. Although they are a No. 1 seed, the Orange will now have to adapt to this unexpected circumstance. Per the school’s website: “Syracuse University sophomore men’s basketball center Fab Melo did not travel with the team to Pittsburgh, and will not take part in the NCAA Tournament due to an eligibility issue. Given University policy and federal student privacy laws, no further details can be provided at this time.”
