Former Louisville forward Chane Behanan has enrolled at Colorado State University, the school announced Monday. Behanan, who was dismissed from Louisville's basketball team on Dec. 30, has been training with former pro basketball player and coach John Lucas in Houston, Texas. Lucas operates a rehabilitation program for athletes. A source told The Courier-Journal earlier this month that 6-6 Behanan was strongly considering exhausting his college eligibility and playing professional basketball. A campus visit two weekends ago to Colorado State changed Behanan's tune. He's already enrolled in classes at the school. "I wanted to get my degree," Behanan told ESPN.com on Monday. "I'm about 38 hours short. I also felt as though it was the right fit with Coach Eustachy." U of L coach Rick Pitino said before the Cardinals' Jan. 16 win over Houston that CSU and coach Larry Eustachy would be good fits for Behanan. "It would be an excellent situation for him — excellent," Pitino said. "They need players ... (Eustachy) is a coach who's been through some difficult times himself and will have great compassion for Chane. He's a terrific, terrific basketball coach, and I want to see that young man make it as much as anyone I've coached." Behanan was Louisville's best offensive rebounder, corralling 17.4 percent of his offensive rebound opportunities in 12 games with the Cards. He averaged 7.6 points and 6.3 rebounds a game this season after playing a critical role in Louisville's 2012-13 national title run.
