    The Syracuse Athletic Department stated: “Given University policy and federal student privacy laws, no further details can be provided at this time.”

    Syracuse was granted the top seed in the East Region in the NCAA Tournament, and were slated to play Thursday at 3:10 PM in Pittsburgh against UNC-Asheville. It’ll be interesting to see how Melo’s absence impacts the team as he was averaging 25.4 minutes, 5.8 rebounds, 2.9 blocks, and 7.8 points per game.
