Rick Pitino and the University of Louisville basketball program finds themselves in the middle of a sex scandal after a self-proclaimed prostitute, Katina Powell, has alleged that former director of operations, Andre McGee, who was also a former U of L basketball player, paid escorts to have sex with players, recruits and player’s guardians.
Powell has also alleged that head basketball coach Rick Pitino knew about the illicit business dealings which were to have happened over the last four years.
“How can it be going on for four years, that many people be involved and that many people see what’s going on and Rick Pitino doesn’t know anything about it?” Katina Powell said in a September interview with Indianapolis Business Journal reporter Anthony Schoettle
“You have players that are very, very loyal to Pitino,” she said. “And if they thought anything was wrong or anyone was going to get in trouble, I’m pretty sure they would have gone back to report to Pitino. When I would ask (U of L staffer Andre McGee), ‘Does Pitino know about this?’ he would laugh and say, ‘Rick knows about everything.'”
