CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - SEMO's star basketball player will be allowed to continue as a student at Southeast Missouri State University. 

However, head basketball coach Scott Edgar says he will make a determination as to the future of Brandon Foust's future with the basketball program after "further consideration."

Foust was suspended over what's been labeled a "dorm incident."

The status of Southeast Missouri State basketball player Brandon Foust had been a question mark since a recent campus dormitory altercation.

Foust has been awaiting completion of the university's judical process to see if he would be able to return to the team.

Southeast has released a statement saying he will be allowed to re-enter the university.

"Brandon and I appreciate the opportunity for him to continue as a student," said Redhawks head basketball coach Scott Edgar. "Along with him, I am apologetic for the incident and the exposure that has occurred.  We look to move forward.  After further consideration, I will make a determination of Brandon's future with the men's basketball program."

Foust is the team's top returning scorer and voted to the pre-season all Ohio Valley Conference squad.
