Report: Syracuse Center Fab Melo Could Return For St. John's Game

SUJuice, a blog that is a part of the SNY.tv sports network, is reporting that sources have told it that Syracuse center Fab Melo will return to the lineup for the Orange's upcoming game with St. John's. Melo has been our for the past two weeks due to unspecified academic issues. The report states:

Multiple sources have told The Juice Online that Fab Melo will be back in the lineup when the Orange play St. John’s Saturday in a noon tip-off at Madison Square Garden. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

Nothing official has been released from the university, so we'll have to wait and see if this information proves to be correct. Getting Melo back in the middle would be a big boost to Syracuse after the Orange suffered their first loss of the season at Notre Dame with Melo out of the lineup.
