BYU boots basketball player for having premarital sex

At 6-foot-9 and 235 pounds, his physical presence was regarded as essential to the 27-2 Cougars as they fought for a possible No. 1 seed in the upcoming NCAA Tournament. Davies’ sudden dismissal, coming just before the end of the regular season, rocked the college basketball world and has significantly altered BYU’s postseason outlook.
