LOUISVILLE, Ky. –University of Louisville junior forward Chane Behanan has been dismissed from the Cardinals’ basketball team for a violation of university policy.
“I want to apologize for letting down my family, teammates, coaches, Tom Jurich, this university and the Louisville fans,” said Behanan.
