Louisville reinstated forward Chane Behanan to the basketball team, head coach Rick Pitino announced Monday.
Behahan had been suspended indefinitely for a violation of university policy and Pitino had originally said that Behanan would not be available until at least mid-December.
"Can Chane come back on the team?" Pitino said last month, via CBSSports.com. "It is possible. It's not probable."

Pitino also said Monday that forward Luke Hancock has been cleared to play for the third-ranked Cardinals. Hancock, the Final Four's Most Outstanding Player, did not play in the team's 70-48 season-opening victory over the College of Charleston because of an Achilles injury.
