Brian Bowen’s Louisville Ban Could Be Lifted

ESPN No. 14 ranked 2018 recruit Brian Bowen, who was suspended by Louisville last month amid the school’s alleged role in a FBI bribery investigation, could now be reinstated to play for the program.

 

Schools involved in the scandal were originally told by the Feds that the they could not begin their internal investigations until the FBI was finished with their probe.

 

On Thursday, Bowen’s attorney Jason Setchen said the FBI has told Louisville that the school can now begin their internal investigation on the matter and they can now consider lifting Bowen’s suspension because “he is clear of ‘investigative impediments’ previously placed by the FBI,” according to the Louisville Courier Journal’s Tim Sullivan.

 

“Brian and I are excited with this development and look forward to working with the university and the NCAA to clarify any concerns or issues that they have in furtherance of Brian’s prompt return to competition,” said Setchen. “I remain optimistic based on my dealings with the university. So far, the university has been very cooperative and open to having further discussions. I believe the university will give Brian a fair opportunity.”

 

Bowen, a 6-7 small forward, averaged 22 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists last season for La Lumiere, leading the team to a 27-1 record and the 2017 DICK’s Nationals championship.

 

He also had a strong AAU season last summer, leading his MeanStreets Nike EYBL squad in scoring and rebounding, averaging 18.9 points and 7.4 rebounds on a loaded team that also included fellow 2018 recruits No. 75 Sr Isaiah Livers, No. 25 PG Sr Alonzo Verge, and No. 84 Nojel Eastern.

 

Bowen prides himself on his all-around game.

 

“The main thing I like to do is get my teammates involved,” Bowen told Scout. “My goal for every game is to try to get a triple-double, rebound the ball, pass the ball, and knock down big shots.”

 

Bowen is still enrolled as a student at Louisville as he waits out his suspension with the team.
