Chane Behanan responds on social media to recent U of L sex allegations

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- News on the U of L sex scandal continues to dominate headlines Tuesday, and now a former Cardinal basketball player is offering his opinion.

Chane Behanan, who played for Louisville from 2011-2013, was named in the book, Breaking Cardinal Rules, by author Katina Powell. In it, Powell states she ran an escort service that provided prostitutes for Louisville basketball players and recruits at parties in Billy Minardi Hall on campus.

In a Facebook post Tuesday night, Behanan vehemently defended Louisville head coach Rick Pitino:

I know for a fact I didn't come too Louisville because of those women, heck no. So come again please. I came to the University of Louisville because I knew with the group of guys we had it will be something special for the university, student population, the fans, the city itself, and also each an everybody family member and I also knew I was one of those missing pieces too a championship team. Which we conquered very easily. With that being said think what you want people it's a free country, too an extent. And for those who think Coach Pitino had any involvement should get their brain check by multiple doctors because it's something seriously wrong with you, Coach P preach good behavior and also how to treat others with the upmost respect. Coach P didn't condone nothing I've put the University through nor did he condone these allegations that's been said. It wasn't all basketball with him, it was always real world related and life after basketball and for me too read how people are saying he knew about it is ridiculous because I know for a fact that's the number one thing he preached was the respect for women and others around us!!! ?#‎UofLChamp2013? ?#‎UofLStrong?

Pitino has denied that he had any knowledge the parties were taking place, or that graduate assistant Andre McGee was providing money to Powell.
