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 after being accused of hitting a female 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 second-leading scorer for the No. 11 Orange could be readmitted prior to the start of classes if he completes the community service, university officials said. That means he will miss at least the game at Memphis on Saturday and Coppin State at home on Monday, but could return for the Big East opener against Seton Hall on Dec. 30.
Devendorf was suspended following an off-campus altercation on Nov. 1 in which he was accused of hitting a female student on the jaw with the heel of his hand.
d the suspension.
The original decision by a judicial hearing board had recommended he be suspended through the academic year.
