LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville coach Rick Pitino has announced that junior Chane Behanan has been dismissed from the team for violating university policy.
    
Pitino did not specify what rule was broken but expressed disappointment that the 6-foot-6 forward had another setback just a month after being reinstated from a 26-day suspension for violating school policy. The coach says Behanan and the Cardinals (11-2) were informed of the decision on Monday morning.
    
Behanan was a key member of Louisville's national championship squad.
    
Pitino says "away from the lines he just did not do the right things. ... It sets our basketball team back immensely."

Behanan went scoreless with seven rebounds in Saturday's 73-66 loss to No. 15 Kentucky. The Cincinnati native closes his Louisville career averaging 9.3 points and 6.9 rebounds per game.

Behanan attended Aiken High School for two years and then transferred out-of-town.
