Well this certainly changes things for the Orange. Despite only having two losses this season many aren’t completely sold on Syracuse and their number one seed. Now, we get word that Syracuse will be without Fab Melo, the guy who anchors that defense, for the entire tournament. Go ahead and throw your brackets out and start again.
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.
