DePaul's Melvin Named Big East Rookie of Year

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.
