Introducing: Mel Basabe

Mel Basabe, a to-be freshmen at Iowa came along with Fran McCaffery after Coach Mac left Siena.

Basabe, a recent graduate of St. Mark’s where he played alongside talented players such as Nate Lubick, Kaleb Tarczewski and Alex Murphy was an overlooked prospect who not until late in his senior started to gain the attention of Big East and ACC schools.

Now, he has a great chance to crack the starting lineup on a depleted Iowa team and he would be a choice for a dark horse Big 10 Freshmen of the Year candidate.

Reports from Iowa Summer league had Basabe with a debut of 36 points and 9 rebounds followed up with 39 and 13.
