In early March, BYU dismissed starting forward Brandon Davies from the team after he admitted to having premarital sex with his girlfriend, a violation of the school's honor code. A reporter reminded Florida basketball coach Billy Donovan and star player Chandler Parsons of the situation the night before the two teams square off in the Sweet 16.

Donovan was asked on Wednesday night about how difficult it would be to recruit to Florida if he had to tell the recruits that they couldn't have premarital sex.

"I'm not going to get into that. I mean, I don't know, Donovan said. "First of all, I don't really talk about any of that stuff, either. I'll pass on that one."

The reporter then turned to Parsons and asked: "How shocked were you when you found out that BYU had kicked one of its best players off the team for having premarital sex, and how many Gators would be left on the team if you had that rule?"

Parsons started to laugh and said "rules are rules." He also said that the team can't worry about that and it's none of his business.
