Well, so much for a slow news day. According to Louisville head coach Rick Pitino, junior Chane Behanan has been kicked off the team for violating university policy. His suspension is indefinite. From Pitino, via Eric Crawford (natch):
“Chane Behanan is no longer a part of our basketball team. He has been suspended by the university. He has a very difficult time understanding life’s values. We are very concerned about Chane Behanan that he move forward and prosper as a person.
We’ve put together a situation where he can come back on the team, but he’s already missed one assignment in a short period. The best thing to do is step away from basketball and learn how to prosper as a person.”
Pitino added that the suspension is for “multiple things,” but warned reporters “don’t ask what it is, we’re not going to tell you.” Rick said that the earliest Behanan can return to the team is mid-December, but he “doubts” that will happen.
So…he’ll definitely be back for the Kentucky game.
