Behanan to transfer to Colorado State from Louisville

FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Chane Behanan, a key member of Louisville's national championship squad who was dismissed from the team last month for a violation of university policy, has enrolled at Colorado State and will play for the Rams next season.

"Chane is one of most talented players in the country, and he will be a key addition to our program next season," Rams head coach Larry Eustachy said in a statement Monday announcing Behanan's move. "He has excelled at the highest level of collegiate athletics and there is no doubt that he will be one of the highest profile players to ever compete on the hardwood for the Rams."

Before being dismissed, Behanan had averaged 8.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and shot 67 percent from the field in 11 games this season for the Cardinals. Louisville coach Rick Pitino did not specify last month what rule was broken but expressed disappointment that Behanan, a 6-foot-6 forward, had another setback just a month after being reinstated from a 26-day suspension for violating school policy.

Behanan will be eligible to play for the Rams after the end of the fall term next December.

"I have decided to enroll at Colorado State to continue my education and my basketball career," Behanan said in the statement released by the school. "I will take online classes this spring and continue my recovery. I'm truly excited for this opportunity to be a part of the CSU basketball family."
