SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -Syracuse guard Eric Devendorf must perform 40 hours of community service and be reinstated by the university before he can play again after hitting a student.
Devendorf can petition to be readmitted for the spring semester that starts Jan. 12 if he completes the community service, the University Appeals Board ruled Friday.
The earliest he could return is Jan. 14 at Georgetown, missing six games. The board had recommended a suspension through the academic year.
Devendorf was suspended for hitting a female student on the jaw with the heel of his hand during an off-campus altercation on Nov. 1.
The 21-year-old from Bay City, Mich., is the second-leading scorer for the No. 11 Orange. He played while he appealed the suspension.
