Louisville Cardinals announce Chane Behanan is indefinitely suspended



According to WDRB  Sports columnist Eric Crawford, Louisville Cardinals power forward Chane Behanan has been indefinitely suspended from the basketball team, and is no longer even living in the dorms the basketball players reside in:

“Chane Behanan is no longer a part of our basketball team. He has been suspended by the university.”

“Can he come back? We set up a situation for him to come back, and he already violated it.”

“We want to see Chane prosper as a person.”

“We are very concerned about Chane Behanan that he move forward and prosper as a person.”

“It’s multiple things. Don’t ask what it is, we’re not going to tell you.”

Behanan, a junior, averaged  9.8 points and 6.5 rebounds last season, helping the Cardinals win the NCAA National Championship.

And according to the Louisville Courier Journal, head coach Rick Pitino and athletic director Tom Jurich met recently and made the decision to suspend Behanan.

Behanan also served a suspension at the beginning of last season, and it looks as though his status with the team is on life support, but given Pitino’s past, he’ll do everything in his power to ensure Behanan gets to exhaust every “last chance” possible to stay on the team and help the Cards defend their national title.

According to Draft Express, Chane is rated as the 66th-best NBA prospect and a likely second-round draft pick at-best if he were to enter the draft next June.
