Brandon Davies was dismissed from BYU’s basketball team after he admitted to having sexual relations with his girlfriend, the Salt Lake Tribune reported Wednesday.

BYU’s honor code forbids students from having premarital sex and instructs them to “live a chaste and virtuous life.”

BYU is in the midst of a dream season. But Brandon Davies’ dismissal over the school’s honor code is a nightmare for the Cougars, writes Eamonn Brennan.

 The newspaper reported that Davies met with school officials on Monday.

BYU officials would only confirm Wednesday that Davies wasn’t involved in anything criminal that resulted in his dismissal from the team.

University spokeswoman Carri Jenkins said an honor code review is under way to determine if the BYU sophomore will be allowed to remain in school, as well as his status with the team next season.

BYU’s honor code also requires students to be honest; abstain from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee and substance abuse; and attend church regularly.
