PROVO, Utah (AP) — BYU players said they will continue to support former teammate Brandon Davies “like a brother” despite transgressions that got the starting forwarded kicked off the nation’s third-ranked team.
There was no denying the Cougars were a different team in Wednesday night’s 82-64 loss to New Mexico. It was their first game without Davies, who on Tuesday was dismissed from the team for the rest of the season for violating the university’s honor code.
The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that Davies engaged in premarital sex, a violation of the clause that says students must remain chaste and virtuous.
“He told us he was sorry and let us down,” BYU guard Jimmer Fredette said after the game in which he scored 33 points but was only 1 of 9 from 3-point range. “We told him it’s OK. Sometimes in life we make mistakes. We’ve got to play through it.”
No one discussed details of what occurred with Davies but BYU coach Dave Rose discussed the school’s controversial honor code.
