Kevin Ware buries suspension rumor

The rumor about Kevin Ware being suspended from the University of Louisville basketball team during the summer originated from a University of Kentucky fan site.

Should have been the first clue that there was little substance to the report.

Later Rick Pitino denied it, saying he was having too much fun celebrating UofL’s third national championship to suspend anybody. But with Rick no one really knows for sure but Rick.

Ware shoveled dirt on the rumor during Media Day activities at the KFC Yum! Center Saturday.

“As far as I know, I saw it on a (University of Kentucky fan) website,” he said. “That’s when my sister brought it to my attention. I wouldn’t say they started it for sure, but that’s the only thing I can think of. Just the whole UofL-UK thing. That’s as far as it goes for me.”

In other words, a UK fan site is not a good source for news on UofL athletics. Plentiful source for rumors, however.
