Brigham Young University has dismissed Brandon Davies– integral member of their #3 nationally ranked men’s hoops team, avg. 11.1 pts and 6.2 rebounds per game.
Davies committed a grievous offense to warrant such harsh action by BYU. Best player on the team or not, Davies was dismissed due to his failure to “live a chaste and virtuous life” as mandated by the schools honor code. This apparently unchaste sophomore was “caught” having sex with… wait for it… HIS GIRLFRIEND!
BYU coach Dave Rose gave comment:
“Everybody who comes to BYU, every student if they’re an athlete or not an athlete, they make a commitment when they come… a lot of people try to judge if this is right or wrong, but it’s a commitment they make. It’s not about right or wrong. It’s about commitment.”
Davies will meet this week with BYU’s honor board to discuss the possibility of him remaining at the school and/or his relationship with the basketball team going forward.
