"SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -- Syracuse center Fab Melo did not travel with the team to Pittsburgh and the university says he won't take part in the NCAA tournament due to an eligibility issue.

The school would not elaborate. Melo missed three games during the season because of an academic issue.

It's a big blow to the Orange (31-2), the top seed in the East Regional. They play 16th-seeded UNC Asheville (24-9), the Big South champion, on Thursday afternoon.

Melo, a 7-footer, was the Big East defensive player of the year and made coach Jim Boeheim's 2-3 zone defense a formidable one. He averaged 7.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and registered 88 blocks."

Should be interesting to see how far they make it without him (Ewing Theory potential?)

Good thing I haven't filled out my bracket yet. Yikes! And yet somehow, I sense that penciling out Syracuse in the second round feels like a bad idea, anyway.

If the issue is over the kid's grades, then good on Syracuse for remembering that they're...you know...a SCHOOL and that grades still mean something.

Syracuse still has a lot of depth and talent, but it would be hard to pick them beyond the Elite 8 now. So I didn't.

Therefore now, more than ever, Go Cats!

That's really bizarre. I guess that's one way to deal with it, strange that no one on Miami seemed to mention it at the time.
