Melvin ranks among the Blue Demons' career leaders in scoring, scoring average, rebounding, field goals, blocked shots and free throws. He was the 2011 Big East Rookie of the Year.
Melvin averaged 16.7 points and 6.4 rebounds in 20 games this season. The Blue Demons are 10-14 overall and 2-9 in Big East play with six straight losses heading into Wednesday's game against No. 6 Villanova.
Not that the Blue Demons were going anywhere this season, but it's a blow to a program trying to reestablish it's brand and develop a winning culture. DePaul will likely miss the NCAA tournament for the 10th consecutive season.
