It started Oct. 17 when Rick Pitino announced Behanan’s suspension by insisting he’d be out for “a long time” if he returns at all. It diminished a bit a week later when Pitino gave a more optimistic timetable that had Behanan playing as soon as December. And now it seems downright ridiculous since Behanan may end up missing only a single regular-season game.
Behanan has been reinstated to the Louisville basketball team and could play as soon as Tuesday night against Hofstra, Pitino announced Monday. Pitino explained the decision to reporters in Louisville by lauding Behanan for adhering to his punishment and not making any mistakes for 30 straight days.”
