Rick Pitino reinstates Chane Behanan to Louisville team
Chane Behanan has been reinstated to the Louisville basketball team and could theoretically play Tuesday night against Hofstra, coach Rick Pitino told reporters on Monday.
Chane Behanan has been reinstated to the Louisville basketball team and could theoretically play Tuesday night against Hofstra, coach Rick Pitino announced Monday.
This is obviously a huge change from the original plan.
Here's the quote from Oct. 17:
"Can Chane come back on the team?" Pitino said while announcing the suspension in a suprise move on a Thursday afternoon. "It is possible. It's not probable."
Pitino added that the earliest Behanan would rejoin the team was mid-December.
Perhaps he meant mid-November.
Because, less than a month later, Behanan will be uniform Tuesday and in a position to help solidify Louisville's frontcourt. The 6-foot-6 junior averaged 9.8 points and 6.5 rebounds last season. He'll likely eventually start beside sophomore Montrezl Harrel.
Also worth noting: Pitino said Monday that Luke Hancock has been cleared to play. He missed Saturday's season-opening win over Charleston because of a nagging Achilles injury.
