Louisville, KY (SportsNetwork.com) - Louisville senior guard Tim Henderson, who has been with the team since 2010 as a walk-on, has been given a scholarship for the spring semester, the school announced Friday.

The spot became available after Cardinals coach Rick Pitino announced Monday that forward Chane Behanan was dismissed from the basketball program and released from his scholarship due to repeated violations of university policy.

"I gave it to him while I was watching film with the team and saying how good his defense was and we've got to play defense like he plays it, and it's a long time coming, but Tim will be given a scholarship second semester," Pitino said. "He came up to thank me after practice and I said, 'Don't thank me, I'm the one who should thank you.'"

A native of Kentucky, Henderson has participated in 69 games for the university. He aided Louisville's 2013 championship run with two key 3- pointers in a Final Four victory over Wichita State.
