DePaul's Melvin Named Big East Rookie of Year
Melvin was the only unanimous selection for the Big East All-Rookie Team.
Cleveland is only the second DePaul freshman to earn conference Freshman of the Year honors since Quentin Richardson did so in Conference USA back in 1999.
The Baltimore, Maryland native averaged 14.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game this season.
In conference action, Melvin ranked among the league's leaders (sixth in the league) with 17.4 points per game and was fifth in field goal percentage (52.2%). He missed the final three Big East games with a sprained thumb on his left hand.
