Brandon Davies was kicked off the BYU team for having sex with his girlfriend.
According to the Salt Lake Tribune, the 6-foot-9 sophomore forward – who was dismissed from the team on Tuesday night – acknowledged his transgression to BYU officials on Monday.
BYU dismissed Davies a day later for violating the school’s Honor Code – which forbids students from having premarital sex. The Cougars lost their first game without Davies, falling to New Mexico 82-64 on Wednesday.
Davis was third on the team in scoring at 11.1 points per game and is the team’s top rebounder.
The Cougars, led by National Player of the Year frontrunner Jimmer Fredette, were 27-2 with Davies in the lineup and had the inside track to a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament.
Davies has been suspended for the remainder of the season, but the newspaper said that his future at the school has yet to be determined.
