University Of Louisville Investigates Claim That Escorts Were Hired for Basketball Recruits

A new book was just released by an escort who alleges that former University of Louisville basketball staffer Andre McGee brought escorts into dorm parties, and paid for women to strip and have sex with the Louisville Cardinals’ basketball recruits, their fathers and players. Good lord.

The book is now available online and called “Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen” by Katina Powell.

43-year-old Powell said she provided entertainment – stripping and sex acts for 22 parties from 2010 to 2014 at the Louisville dorms. The high school-age recruits were also offered alcohol by Andre McGee, the former Louisville staffer who also arranged additional payment to Powell and her dancers if the recruits wanted to have sex with them. Some of the recruits were as young as 16 years old.

Andre McGee who currently works at Missouri-Kansas City was put on paid leave Friday night and issued a statement saying the allegations were being taken seriously.
