Louisville coach Rick Pitino says that junior forward Chane Behanan has been reinstated and will dress for Tuesday night's game against Hofstra. Pitino announced on Oct. 17 that Behanan had been suspended indefinitely for violating school policy, but didn't specify what team rule was broken. The coach later said that the 6-foot-6, 250-pound player would miss at least the first month with the third-ranked Cardinals. The coach said Monday that Behanan had met conditions for his return and returned to practice on Friday. Pitino says, ''I had a target of 30 straight days of (Behanan) doing the right things and I didn't think he would ever do it, to be honest.''
