Chane Behanan almost won a street ball tourney in Madisonville, and by that I mean he lost to high schoolers

dust-bowl

At one time, not that long ago, Chane Behanan was a five-star prospect with a world of potential. Then he made the one mistake all five-star basketball prospects should avoid: he signed with Louisville and watched his NBA dreams fade away.

The latest chapter in the Behanan sob story occurred over the weekend when he played in the “Dust Bowl,” an amateur street ball tournament in Madisonville, my hometown. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. (I’m talking about Madisonville. You’re better than that.)

Behanan, who was hoping to find a spot on an NBA roster this summer, entered the tournament as a main attraction, one would think. But then he lost to a team of high schoolers, including Hoop Dreams’ Eli Wright, Aric Holman and Ben Moss Jr. Behanan’s group wasn’t even around on championship day of, again, a street ball tournament in Madisonville, Kentucky. This is a guy who was starting in the national championship game 16 months ago.

While Behanan was handed an early exit by the kiddos, Jon Hood and several former Maroons went on to win the Dust Bowl crown. Hood and Team Elite rolled through the tourney to defend home court in Hopkins County.

    I could’ve recruited a team of high schoolers to beat Jon Hood’s team.

    One of my boyz saw this game Chane was fouled at least 50 times with no calls. He just ran out of time more than he lost

    Did I hear Hood was by far the best player in the tourney and had numerous dunks, fast breaks, and long threes?

      You know what, I have NO sympathy for Chane Behanan. He had lots of talent and multiple opportunities to make something of himself, and he squandered them all. You don’t just arbitrarily get kicked out of school when you’re a 5 star scholarship athlete like him. He got in trouble repeatedly by making stupid decisions, and now he’s paying the consequences. He thought he was above the rules, but found out he is not.

      That’s a big leap. “I have no sympathy for someone that made mistakes” becomes “It’s okay to spend time and energy and go out of our way to shit all over a kid that got kicked out of school.”

      Chane Behanan has made many a poor decision.

      Perhaps jimbob can be his guidance counselor.

      When smokin’ dope is more important to him than his dreams, why would he care if someone is talkin’ trash about his ball game? If he doesn’t even care, why do you?

    Not to be deterred, after Chane’s team was eliminated from the Dust Bowl, he then smoked a bowl in the parking lot

    Seems to me the more classy thing to do would have been to write an article on Jon Hood’s team winning.

    I guess at KSR it’s more important to put down an ex Louisville player for doing bad than it is to give one of our own props for doing good.

      Since when do you expect, or even want KSR to be “classy?” That’s not the KSR way, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

      Rupps. I don’t expect anything from KSR. It is what it is. However, this is posted at the top of the page. “University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.” I have to say that Chane getting put out of a Tourny has nothing to do with any of this. However, had they wrote the article about Hood’s team, and then included the info about Chane, that’s a different story. To sum it up, I come here to read about UK, not anou UL, which seems to be what a lot of these writers want to focus on. Would you not agree that a site dedicated to UK Sports would be better served to talking about UK sports. With this post, they made an Ex UL player the focus and UK’s ex player the secondary story.

      As far as some of the humor and “unconvemtional” post, I like it too and wouldn’t want that changed.

      Cal’s Coffin they did mention Jon Hood winning so that is UK basketball news and telling us that by making fun of Chane seems like a ridiculous manner so I think they covered it perfectly

    Oh Drew, it’s so disappointing how childish you can be. Chane Behanan may have problems but don’t you realize how petty you look writing this kind of garbage.

    Pitino is a system coach. He developers players for his system which does not translate to the next level. Guards and forwards are almost assured to not make the league, or stay a couple years at the most. The center position will get drafted just because of size, but even the center position pitino hasn’t had much success getting them to the league. Almost every pitino player, regardless of how highly ranked, usually stays more than three years in college, most four, either don’t get drafted, or never make second contract. Don’t know why kids and parents can’t see this.

    Jon Hood has that pirate ship look about him. You know like there is a good chance his eye is fake, he has a parrot, ocean hair and possibly scurvy.

    To be fair that was a stacked basketball team (but still high schoolers). I wish Cal would recruit Eli and Aric. Nothing like having Owensboro boys play for the CATS.

    I played on a team that played against him and we only lost by 12. We only had 7 players , none which were over 6’2. We actually led in the second half. As much as I dislike Chane, he was actually a pretty good sport. Also, Hood and his team lost their first game after a kid who played for Hoptown last year( forgot his name), lit them up for over 40.

      I would like to remind you that your title was bookend by a loss to UK in the final four as UK won the title, and a loss to UK in the Sweet 16 as UK went to the championship game. Bitch.

      Cardinal fans were quick to write off UK’s ’12 championship halfway through the summer, “the past is the past, the new season is upon us and you’re still talking about the past.” Well it’s almost the start of the ’14 season and you morons are still reppin’ you’re ’13 championship. This is the same logic brought to you by the fans that argue that nothing regarding basketball before 1980 should be counted because Louisville hadn’t won their first championship…
