WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Wake Forest head basketball coach Jeff Bzdelik announced on Tuesday that freshman forward Melvin Tabb has been released from the basketball program for the remainder of the season.

“Melvin Tabb has been released from this basketball team for the remainder of the season for conduct detrimental to the team,” said Bzdelik.

Tabb played in 14 games this season, averaging 1.6 points and 2.0 rebounds in 8.9 minutes per game.

Tabb missed a portion of the year after being temporarily released from basketball activities on Nov. 22 in order to focus on his academic work. He sat out four games before returning to the team on Friday, Dec. 10, following fall semester exams.

The 6-8 forward played in 11 games after his reinstatement but has not seen action since Jan. 22 against Duke.

Tabb also missed portions of preseason practice due to a bout of mononucleosis. He sat out the season opener against Stetson due to the illness.
