“Eric clearly made a mistake and should be punished. It is his responsibility to fulfill the requirements of this decision,” Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said.
Added Devendorf: “I’m disappointed that I put myself in this position which resulted in being suspended as a student and unable to participate in a number of games, including tomorrow’s game [against No. 23 Memphis]. I understand the decision and will be complying with all of the requirements of it.”
It remains unclear when, or if, Devendorf will return to the Orange.
FLYNN A GAME-TIME DECISIONGuard Jonny Flynn did not practice on Friday after injuring his right hip in Syracuse’s win over Canisius on Wednesday. Instead of practicing, Flynn received treatment on his hip, according to the Syracuse Post-Standard. Flynn, a sophomore point guard, is Syracuse’s leading scorer. Boeheim said Flynn’s playing status would be a game-time decision.
