Dec 11, 2008 12:13 AM

A Syracuse University judicial hearing board has recommended that guard Eric Devendorf be suspended for the remainder of the academic year after they ruled that he allegedly hit a female student in the face, ESPN News Services are reporting.

Devendorf is expected to appeal the decision, and while the appeal is in process, he is able to play.

"Any player can still play while the case is under appeal," Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim told ESPN.com on Wednesday, adding he will allow Devendorf to do just that.

The appeals process could take anywhere from 15 to 20 days, Boeheim said.

"He's not going to be treated any differently", the coach said.
