The junior forward was readmitted to the university and reinstated to the basketball team on Friday afternoon, according to BYU university spokeswoman Carri Jenkins.
Davies was suspended because of an Honor Code violation back in March and withdrew from BYU in April.”I’m excited to be back at BYU and look forward to the future,” Davies said in a statement. “I’m grateful for this opportunity.”
Before Davies was suspended, the Cougars had beaten former Mountain West Conference rival San Diego State and moved up to No. 3 in the national rankings. Davies’ suspension for the rest of the season was announced before the team’s next game, which BYU lost 82-64 at home to New Mexico.
The Cougars also lost in the MWC Conference Championship game but made it to the Sweet 16 and finished with a 5-3 record without Davies. Although Davies was unable to play, he was allowed to attend the NCAA Tournament and supported his team from the bench.
The Provo native averaged 11.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.5 assists in his 26 starts last season. Davies also earned All-MWC Honorable Mention honors.
Head coach Dave Rose said in a statement he is grateful to have Davies back on the team for the upcoming season.
