LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Rick Pitino has ended Louisville guard Chris Jones’ suspension for violating unspecified team rules after coach says the Cardinals’ senior point guard met conditions for reinstatement.

Louisville basketball spokesman Kenny Klein said Thursday via text that “coach Pitino said Chris has done what he needed to do and his suspension is over.”

Pitino’s decision follows Wednesday’s 69-59 loss at Syracuse, Louisville’s third in four games. After that loss, Pitino said Jones could return Saturday against Miami (17-9, 7-6 Atlantic Coast Conference), but only if he responds in the manner expected

Freshman Quentin Snider scored 13 points in place of Jones, who did not travel after being suspended Tuesday.

Jones leads No. 12 Louisville (20-6, 8-5) with 3.7 assists per game and is third in scoring (13.6 points).
