Chane Behanan reaches point of no return

The University of Louisville can’t say why Chane Behanan was dismissed. Behanan isn’t telling either.

They don’t have to give the details. Fans are left to draw their own conclusions, taking less than five seconds for most to get the picture.

Apparently the University bent over backwards to give him second, third and fourth chances and Behanan continued to test the system, failing to pass, disappointing the school, his teammates and fans. Most of all himself, kicking his future down a crooked road that may lead nowhere.

The distractions possibly too difficult to resist, clouding his vision and judgement, negating any further progress after returning from the indefinite suspension. No doubt he was instrumental in UofL’s recent basketball success, those two Final Four’s and a national championship, examples of what it takes to be successful.

Evidently he was as challenged away from the game as he was on the court, unable to quite retain the really important lessons in life and basketball.

A shame for Chane and everyone who is counting on him. Here’s hoping he somehow turns things around.
