SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Syracuse sophomore Fab Melo did not travel with the No. 1 Orange for their game against Notre Dame on Saturday, and junior Mookie Jones has left the school for personal reasons.

Melo, for undisclosed reasons, will also miss Monday’s game against Cincinnati. Citing school policy and federal student privacy laws, the school did not elaborate on either decision.

Melo leads Syracuse (20-0, 7-0 Big East) in rebounding at 5.0 per game. Jones appeared in only seven games, averaging 2.9 points.
