CHICAGO -- DePaul star forward Cleveland Melvin is no longer enrolled in school or part of the basketball program.

The school announced the split with the senior on Monday after suspending him last month for violating team rules.

Melvin ranks among the Blue Demons' career leaders in scoring, scoring average, rebounding, field goals, blocked shots and free throws. He was the 2011 Big East Rookie of the Year.

Melvin averaged 16.7 points and 6.4 rebounds in 20 games this season. The Blue Demons are 10-14 overall and 2-9 in Big East play with six straight losses heading into Wednesday's game against No. 6 Villanova.
