BYU's Brandon Davies Suspended For Remainder Of Season For Violating Honor Code

Davies

BYU now faces another challenge in their attempt to gain a number one-seed in the NCAA tournament as starting center Brandon Davies has been suspended for the rest of this season. BYU sent out a release on Davies suspension:

"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.

Being suspended for violating the Honor Code can range from many, may things. Davies could have failed a class, had a female in his room after hours, cheating, improper appearance are among some of the things that caused Davies to be suspended.

Davies has not been completely removed from the team or the University, so there is a chance that he could return to the school next season.

This is a big hit for BYU who is lacking in big man depth as Davis is BYU's third leading scorer at 11.1 points per game and averages 6.2 rebounds per game. While guard play is big in the NCAA tournament and BYU has Jimmer Fredette, but BYU needs some type of size to be able to rebound and take advantage of their transition game. This could be an issue if BYU ends up playing San Diego State in the Mountain West tournament finals since the Aztecs already have a size advantage over BYU, and now they will have more of an advantage.

So, it looks like BYU will truly go as far as Jimmer Fredette will take them this post season.
