BYU Boots Star Basketball Player For Pre-marital Sex
Sophomore forward, Brandon Davies, is averaging 11 points and 6 rebounds for BYU’s highly ranked basketball team.
When the word got out that he was suspended, rumors began to fly and suspicions of drug violations, conduct or academics were all named as possible reasons.
Brandon, however had sex with his girlfriend and told his team and school officials on Monday. At Brigham Young University, the students make a commitment to abstain from things like alcohol, coffee, tea and most importantly, pre-marital sex.
The Mormon school has an Honor Code that demands regular church attendance and places their values higher than a basketball tournament appearance.
Though coach David Rose said he was surprised and he believes the suspension that will stop Davies from participating in any more games this season will be lifted, he does stand behind the decision.
“A lot of people try to judge if this is right or wrong, but it’s a commitment they make. It’s not about right or wrong. It’s about commitment,” said Rose.
Should they let him play or does he deserve to sit for sleeping with his girlfriend?
