CMU’s Melillo honored by RMAC
Mike Melillo had back-to-back double-figure scoring nights to open the season for the Colorado Mesa University men’s basketball team. Monday, he was selected the RMAC offensive player of the week.
The 6-foot-5 sophomore guard from Boulder scored 19 points in the Mavs’ win over Fresno Pacific, then followed it up with 18 points in a loss to Dixie State.
On the weekend, Melillo averaged a double-double, with 18.5 points and 10 rebounds a game. He shot 42 percent from the field and had three assists, three blocked shots and one steal.
The Mavericks are off until Nov. 23, when they host Northern New Mexico in the Clarion Inn Thanksgiving Classic at Brownson Arena.
