In three games this season Syracuse allowed nearly 10 more points per 100 possessions without Fab Melo, who has been ruled ineligible for the NCAA tournament.

Melo averaged 2.93 blocks per game while accounting for 37.6 percent of the Orange’s total blocked shots this season.

Syracuse excels at creating points off turnovers, as the Orange averaged 1.23 points for every forced miscue, which is the second highest rate among schools in the Big Six conferences.
