The Cardinal Connect:
After having arguably the best performance of his career, Louisville forward Chane Behanan is expected to miss the Cards Big East opener against Providence tomorrow night.
Coach Pitino told the media earlier this afternoon that Behanan, along with redshirt freshman Mangok Mathiang are battling the flu. “We’re a little under the weather right now, and our practices have not been good,” he said. “I hope it’s not a long bug.”
Behanan had 20 points and 7 rebounds against Kentucky on Saturday. He is averaging 11.5 points and 7.5 rebounds per game this season. Freshman Montrezl Harrell is expected to start in his place.
