Several weeks, rumors surrounding the suspension of Louisville’s Kevin Ware circulated the web. Today, head basketball coach Rick Pitino addressed the rumors in front of the media. Here’s what he had to say:
Pitino: “Kevin Ware was never suspended from our basketball team.”

Pitino: “Kevin Ware was never suspended from our basketball team… Chane’s not suspended. Mango was not suspended…”

This should set the record straight and settle the Louisville basketball drama. Ware still has a long way to go in his recovery from his freakish injury, but that is the only thing that will determine how long it takes for him to return to the court.
