Cleveland Melvin Leaves DePaul Program

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

The Blue Demons lose their star forward for the rest of the season

DePaul forward Cleveland Melvin is no longer enrolled at DePaul, according to a statement released by the university earlier today.

Melvin, a senior, had been suspended from the team for the last four games due to an unspecified violation of team rules. The school has not said why Melvin is no longer enrolled, and DePaul spokesman Greg Greenwell has said the university and coach Oliver Purnell will not comment further on the situation.

Melvin leaves DePaul as its leading scorer, averaging 16.7 points per game and 6.4 rebounds, and was one of the school's all-time leaders in points, blocks, rebounds, steals, scoring average, field goals and free throws. He was named BIG East rookie of the year after his freshman year before having a breakout season as a sophomore, averaging a career-best 17.5 points per game and 7.4 rebounds.
