Brandon Davies, BYU's starting center, is done for the rest of the year per an Honor Code violation.
The school responded to a Daily Herald inquiry Tuesday afternoon and the school issued a press release through the athletic department around 6 p.m.
"Due to a violation of the BYU Honor Code, Brandon Davies will not represent the university on the men’s basketball team throughout the remainder of the 2010-11 season," the release said.
Davies, a sophomore from Provo, has started 26 of 29 games for the No. 3-ranked Cougars, averaging 11.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 24.9 minutes per game in 2010-11.
BYU would not make public details regarding violations of its Honor Code. Given BYU became aware of this violation yesterday, some decisions regarding Davies’ future on the basketball team and at the university are yet to be determined, according to the release.
BYU head coach Dave Rose was not immediately available for comment. On Monday, Davies missed practice along with three other players. The reason the sixth-year head coach gave was a quadriceps injury suffered in BYU's important win against San Diego State.
Davies was at the Marriott Center yesterday receiving treatment, the Daily Herald was told.
