Even though Louisville forward Chane Behanan was having one of his better games of the season, the absence of freshman Montrezl Harell had many fans puzzled during last night’s game against UConn.
I initially thought Rick Pitino may have just thought Chane Behanan was a better fit for last night’s match-up and he certainly played well. However, after the game Pitino said there were other reasons that factored into why Harrell played only four minutes.
“He was throwing up and well it was coming out on both ends,” Pitino said when asked if there was anything wrong with Harrell. “He could have played, but I was just a little concerned.”
That may have been a little too much info, but at least we know why he didn’t play much.
