Chane Behanan Cleared Of Any Wrongdoing In Ring Situation, Will Play Tonight

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

U of L has found that Chane Behanan was in no way involved with the appearance of his 2012 Final Four ring on an auction web site, and as a result the junior will suit up as planned for Friday night's home game against Southern Mississippi.

Behanan's ring was reportedly stolen from his grandmother's home in Cincinnati, a theft which the family was unaware of until Tuesday morning when they were told the ring was being auctioned online.

U of L issued the following release on Friday:

"University of Louisville and law enforcement officials have gathered extensive information into their examination of how Chane Behanan's 2012 Final Four ring recently appeared on a sports memorabilia auction site and have determined that Behanan was not involved in the process. After communicating with multiple parties, there was no indication that Behanan had anything to do with the ring being presented for sale or that he had any knowledge the ring had been stolen until information appeared on social media Tuesday night."

Behanan's brother, Cameron Warren, said earlier this week that it was "not a shock" to hear that the ring had been stolen, and that he and his family have a pretty good idea of who the individual or individuals responsible are. Warren also told WHAS-11 that the family plans to file a police report.

"We know the individuals. We know it fits their character. At the end of the day that's just the only option to take at this point," said Warren.

Behanan enters tonight averaging 8.6 points and 7.5 rebounds.
