NCAA Basketball: Chane Behanan’s Surprising Return

+Read full article

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Louisville Cardinals forward Chane Behanan was recently reinstated by coach Rick Pitino and will be in uniform for Louisville in their game against Hofstra. This development comes as a big surprise for a lot of people considering it was said that Behanan would miss the first month of the season for violating a school policy.

Obviously, Behanan must have done something right and worked hard to try to get himself back in the good standings of Pitino. The coach had stated that he wanted 30 good days out of his junior forward and Behanan was able to do that. That shows a player who, although he did make a serious mistake, wanted to do the right thing and be looked at favorably by his coach and team.

That showed a real sense of accountability and some level of maturity. Sometimes being mature doesn’t mean not making mistakes. No one is perfect. It is what one does when they learn from those mistakes and grow from them that show a true sense of maturity. Be accountable. Admit when you make a mistake. Behanan could have refused to take ownership for whatever he did wrong. However, he must have realized how much basketball means to him, so he was going to do whatever it took to get reinstated.

He deserves a lot of credit for being an adult and knowing that he let his team down. He might find that after all this, he may be looked upon in much better regards by everyone on the team just by showing how serious he was about wanting to come back to play for Louisville.

College can have the best learning experiences and they aren’t just about what you learn in the classroom. They can be lessons about life.

Duke's Grayson Allen Earns Flagrant Foul For Tripping

Duke's Grayson Allen earned a flagrant foul on Monday evening against Louisville in what was an absolutely outrageous act. After missing a layup in the second half and falling to the floor, Allen intentionally tripped Louisville's Raymond Spalding, who grabbed the rebound and began to head down court. Plays like this are the reason why Allen is so incredibly disliked around the country.
