Dezmine Wells was going to be a key player for Xavier going forward. He was entering his sophomore year and he showed a ton of talent last year. However, he will no longer be in school after violating school policy. The reasoning is as follows.
“The Xavier University Conduct Board (UCB), made up of faculty, students and administrators, found Xavier sophomore and basketball player Dezmine Wells responsible for a serious violation of the Code of Student Conduct. The punishment for the violation is expulsion from the University
“While we understand there is heightened interest in this situation because it involves a student-athlete, we must reiterate that first and foremost Xavier’s interest and responsibility to all of our students is to provide a quality education in a safe and nurturing environment
“A serious violation of Xavier’s Code of Student Conduct will not be tolerated. All Xavier students are subject to the same protections and consequences.
“Because of Federal privacy law restrictions, no additional comments may be made in order to protect the privacy of those involved, and to honor the integrity of the UCB process.”
Remember, Xavier was involved in an ugly brawl last season that brought a lot of shame to a school like Xavier. If you are going to be based on religious morals, brawling is not a good way to come across. I applaud the school for taking quick action and we will have to see what the true reason was. Something tells me that is not going to look very good on Dezmine Wells.
