BREAKING NEWS: NCAA Rejects UL Defense of Pitino

WDRB.com has released information concerning the latest report from the NCAA on the ongoing investigation into the sex scandal under the watch of Rick Pitino at the University of Louisville.

Here are some key statements from the NCAA in the new release:

  • “Put simply,” the NCAA said, “arranging and funding sexual intercourse for a prospective student athlete on an official visit is a severe violation, wholly inconsistent with NCAA principles, whether valued at $80 or $120.

It seems the NCAA is a bit perturbed about UL using the argument that the prostitutes were “cheap” would make a difference in the ruling from the NCAA. It also seems clear the NCAA isn’t taking the “arranging and funding sexual intercourse for a prospective student athlete” lightly pointing out it’s “a severe violation”.

  • The NCAA said that “the factual information in this case does not completely support Pitino’s statements.” The NCAA report contains little information not already made public.  But it does include a remark – presumably from a U of L player or former player — that “it was common knowledge among his teammates that the adult entertainment was occurring in Minardi. [Name redacted] reported that whenever a highly sought after prospect was visiting the institution, adult entertainers were in the dormitory.”

The NCAA has put into question nearly every argument made by the University of Louisville and Rick Pitino. The 2013 banner is jeopardy and the door is wide open for severe penalties coming to the University of Louisville from the NCAA. It’s all in the open now.

Katina Powell Speaks to Doug Gottlieb (VIDEO)

Bluevs. (1)

From CBS Sportsline:

“Katina Powell — the former escort who published a book detailing parties for Louisville basketball players and recruits that featured dancers and prostitutes — has agreed to meet with the NCAA for the first time next week, a source confirmed to CBS Sports.

ESPN’s Outside the Lines reported that Powell is expected to hand over documents to the NCAA — including copies of her journals and phone records. According to Powell, those documents prove that former Louisville staff member Andre McGee was in fact arranging parties for players and recruits in violation of NCAA rules despite his public denial.”

Check out an interview between Katina Powell and Doug Gottlieb. It’s not a good day for Louisville basketball. Again. Louisville already is Top 10 in NCAA violations. They could rise in the rankings very soon.

NBC Sports is now reporting that Rick Pitino knew about the scandal involving sex escorts being paid for by UL staff member Andre McGee.

Multiple players were mentioned in the book including Antonio Blakeney.

“Five-star LSU freshman Antonio Blakeney was explicitly mentioned in the book, with Powell going into detail about how an escort was sent to the hotel room that he was staying in. Ohio State’s five-star freshman Ja’Quan Lyle was also mentioned. Both players were, at one point, committed to Louisville.”

A very damning quote from the madame, Katina Powell, was released today from an interview with the Indianapolis Business Journal point out Rick Pitino knew about the escorts.

“When I would ask Andre, ‘Does Pitino know about this?’ he would laugh and say, ‘Rick knows about everything.’”
