Behanan Has Good Showing At AAU's

Chane Behanan, No. 85 in the 2011 class, is having a strong spring. He continued his impressive play in Lexington this past weekend at the KY State AAU's.

Chane Behanan wants to leave a last impression. Playing on the spring and summer circuit for the last time, the 6-foot-7, 235-pound power forward out of Bowling Green (Ky.) High is playing an aggressive brand of ball.

"It's my last year," Behanan said. "I feel like I need to make a good impression on all the scouts and college coaches. I've been working on my dribbling, shooting and just getting in shape."

Throughout the spring, Behanan's teams have won. Although the KY Blazers feel early in the state AAU's, when he played with Ohio Basketball Club they reach at least the championship in three different events.

"Now my dribbling [is improving], I've been working on that," Behanan added. "I'm rebounding more and I'm getting up and down the court. I'm just playing defense and trying to help my team win."

"I know in college I'm not going to be down there all the time," Behanan said when asked about his face up game. "I have to do something against the bigger and slower defenders."

In the one game we took in of Behanan at the Kentucky State AAU's he went for 27 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists, showing a versatile, but dominant game.

Following the game, Behanan said his recruitment has picked up. He currently holds scholarship offers from West Virginia, Louisville, Georgia, Oklahoma State, Alabama, Cincinnati and Western Kentucky. Texas, Kansas and Kentucky are also showing interest.

"I'm handling it real well and I'm just taking it one day at a time," Behanan said. "I've told a few reporters but I'm not going to make my decision until February 24th or after that because my brother is in jail."

"I'm going to wait until he gets out then he comes all my family can be there," the four-star prospect added.

Behanan, who used to be committed to Cincinnati, has taken unofficial visits to West Virginia, Louisville and Cincinnati.

"I like all my [schools]," Behanan said. "I just don't have any favorites."
