Report: Louisville to receive notice of allegations from NCAA this week
Louisville is expected to receive a notice of allegations from the NCAA this week regarding the sex scandal involving the men’s basketball program, according to a report.
The Louisville Courier-Journal reports the news and says the University of Louisville is expected to make the findings public on Thursday.
The scandal began over a year ago when self-proclaimed escort Katina Powell began promoting a book in which she details the parties and services she and her workers provided for the Louisville Cardinals basketball team. She says former Louisville staffer Andre McGee paid her thousands to provide sexual entertainment for recruits and players on the basketball team.
Louisville began to investigate the claims in response and self-imposed a few penalties, such as a postseason ban and the reduction of four scholarships over two years.
The notice of allegations will explain the improper actions the basketball program is accused of. It will not propose penalties. Louisville believes that its self-imposed penalties will satisfy the NCAA.
After receiving the notice of allegations, Louisville will be able to send a response to the NCAA, which will review the response. Then the sides go before the NCAA committee on infractions to determine penalties.
A previous report has said three Louisville recruits confirmed to the NCAA that the stripper parties did take place.
