|BYU's Davies Reinstated For Upcoming Season
|SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Brigham Young University has reinstated junior center Brandon Davies after a six-month suspension from the basketball team and university.
University officials say in a statement Friday that Davies will be allowed to attend classes at BYU this fall.
Davies was suspended in March because of violations of the school's honor code. Students are prohibited from having premarital sex or drinking alcoholic beverages, among other rules.
Davies, who grew up in Provo, had started 26 of 29 games for the Cougars and averaged 11.1 points and a team-leading 6.2 rebounds prior to his suspension.
Davies says in a statement he is grateful for the opportunity to return to BYU and play for the Cougars again.
