U of L says Chane Behanan "not involved" in NCAA ring flap

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The University of Louisville has one thing to say about Chane Behanan's 2012 NCAA Final Four ring recently appearing on a sports memorabilia auction Web site.

The school says he had nothing to do with it.

In a news release distributed Friday afternoon, the university states that Behanan, "was not involved in the process," and was not aware that the ring had been offered up for auction until reports began appearing in social media Tuesday night.

Selling a championship ring is a violation of NCAA rules. The ring was taken off the auction block after Behanan's mother claimed it was stolen.

The ring is the latest controversy involving basketball player Chane Behanan.

Behanan was suspended from the team earlier this season for violating team rules. Louisville coach Rick Pitino would not disclose what those violations were.

Behanan and his U of L teammates are expected to face off against Southern Mississippi at the KFC Yum! Center Friday night.
