SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -A Syracuse University judicial hearing board has ruled that starting guard Eric Devendorf violated the Student Code of Conduct after allegedly hitting a female student in the face.
The board recommended that Devendorf, a 6-foot-4 junior, be suspended for the remainder of the academic year. He is expected to appeal the decision.
Richard Kesnig, a lawyer who represents the female student, said the university faxed him the decision late Wednesday afternoon.
Devendorf is the third-leading scorer for the No. 13 Orange, averaging 14.1 points and 3.1 assists. He missed most of last season with a torn knee ligament.
