To say the least,  Syracuse Organge has missed it's star center, Fab Melo on the basketball court. That first loss of the season a couple of weekends ago to Notre Dame may have had a different outcome had Melo been on the court, but now he's back. Melo missed playing the past few games, reportedly due to an academic issue.


According to a statement just released by the Syracuse University Athletic Department:


"The Athletics Department's Communications Office is releasing the following information regarding the men's basketball team:

Sophomore Fab Melo will return to the Syracuse University men's basketball playing roster beginning this Saturday on the road against St. John's in Madison Square Garden.

Given University policy and federal student privacy laws, we are not able to provide any other details about this matter."

This  Saturday's game starts at 12 noon.
