BYU center Brandon Davies was dismissed from the third-ranked Cougars basketball team for violating the school’s honor code that forbids premarital sex, according to a report from The Salt Lake Tribune.

Davies, a sophomore and the team’s leading rebounder, admitted his actions to BYU officials on Monday, according to the report.

The school’s honor code requires students comply with the following:

- Be honest

- Live a chaste and virtuous life

- Obey the law and all campus policies

- Use clean language

- Respect others

- Abstain from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee and substance abuse

- Participate regularly in church services

- Observe the Dress and Grooming Standards

- Encourage others in their commitment to comply with the Honor Code

Without Davies, the Cougars suffered an 82-64 loss to New Mexico Wednesday night.
