Katina Powell Speaks, Twitter Reacts, Should Rick Pitino Step Down?
Katina Powell, the former Louisville escort, and co-author of Breaking Cardinal Rules: broke her silence with ESPN’S Outside the Lines today about whether her allegations with then Louisville’s director of basketball operations Andre’ McGee provided money in upwards of $10,000 from 2010-2014 for stripper parties, and sexual acts to former Louisville players and recruits.
“I had received a phone call from Andre’.” Katina told ESPN’s OTL. “And he (Mcgee) asked me if me and another girl would go to a hotel and basically have sex with Antonio Blakeney and his guardian.”
Allegations from the former Louisville escort broke in early October when the Indianapolis Business Journal published a story titled “Louisville staffer hired prostitutes to woo recruits.“ The story died down for a few days until the investigation by ESPN’s Outline the Lines brought the allegations back on a National stage today.
“It hit us all like a bomb shell, but we will find the truth. Rick Pitino stated during UofL Media day. “Whatever that may be (Truth) and people will pay the price for any wrong doing that may occur.”
Now with the Nation being fully aware of the scandal going on at the University of Louisville, raises the the question of Did Pitino know? and should he be let go or force to resign if he knew of these serious allegations are not? The University of Louisville, and law enforcement in Louisville, along with the NCAA are currently investigating these allegations. Comment below on should Rick stay or should Rick go?
