According to Rick Bozich of WDRB, Rick Pitino says that Chris Jones “probably won’t start,” but should be back with the team on Saturday when the Cards host Miami.
In a text message, Pitino said that Jones “took care of what the coaches wanted.” Pitino said the disciplinary matter concerned “discipline on campus.”
After last night’s loss to Syracuse, Pitino had this to say about Jones…
“This was a decision – it’s all cleared up – he could play the next game if he does what the assistant coaches tell him to do. If he doesn’t, he sits again. And I don’t care if he sits the whole season, to tell you the truth. I couldn’t care less. Because if he’s not going to do the right things and act like a Louisville man, he can move on and try to go to Belgium somewhere.”
So last night, Pitino was ready to send him to Belguim. Now he will probably be back on Saturday. Sounds about right! 🙂
