BYU Says Brandon Davies’ Dismissal Due to Honor Code Violation, Not Criminal Actions

1,786

SALT LAKE CITY — BYU officials confirmed Wednesday that starting forward Brandon Davies wasn’t involved in anything criminal that resulted in his dismissal from the team.

University spokeswoman Carri Jenkins said an honor code review is under way to determine if the BYU sophomore will be allowed to remain in school, as well as his status with the team next season.

BYU’s honor code requires students to live a chaste and virtuous life, be honest, abstain from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee and substance abuse, and attend church regularly.

The school announced the dismissal on Tuesday night after being made aware of the violation Monday – the same day that BYU vaulted to No. 3 in the AP poll.

Davies had started 26 of 29 games and averaged 11.1 points and a team-leading 6.2 rebounds.
