SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WTVR) – Syracuse University starting center Fab Melo will miss the 2012 NCAA Tournament. Syracuse University posted the follow statement on its 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.

Syracuse is a #1 seed in the upcoming NCAA tournament.

Melo missed three games earlier this season due to an unspecified academic issue. Syracuse won two games and lost once without Melo in the lineup. Syracuse had won 19 straight games with Melo in the line up before losing without him.

Syracuse ended the regular season ranked second in the country with a 30-1 record. The Orange won its first game and lost its second game in the Big East Tournament last week in New York City. Fab Melo played in both conference tournament games.
