The book alleges that over a four-year period, Powell brought women into Billy Minardi Hall the basketball dormitory on the Louisville campus that is named after Pitinos late brother-in-law through a side door to entertain players and recruits. Powell also says her dancers which included her daughters also entertained Louisville players at other locations off campus. After the women danced for the players for an agreed-upon sum, Powell alleges that she would negotiate a second payment for the women to have sex with the athletes.

The book alleges: At the peak of the dormitory and off-campus entertainment more than $10,000 cash changed hands to Katina for supplying the women. This does not include the hundreds of one dollar bills thrown at the dancers at each party by McGee, the recruits and players. Nor does it include the money paid to the women who had sex with the recruits afterward. So frequent were the escapades that Katina would later say, especially after the Cardinals won the 2012-2013 NCAA championship: I felt like I was part of the recruitment team. A lot of them players went to Louisville because of me.

All these people making jokes. You assholes were probably ready to drop the hammer on Miami when Miami players were partying on boats with hookers.

This isn't going away anytime soon:
 
 
An unnamed source told ESPN's "Outside the Lines" that the three former recruits told investigators they attended parties at an on-campus dorm where strippers and prostitutes were brought in to entertain them.
 
Katina Powell, a self-described former escort, released a book in October that claimed former Louisville graduate assistant Andre McGee had paid her to provide strippers for recruits on multiple occasions. Coach Rick Pitino has denied any knowledge of the parties, though the school opted to self-impose a one-year postseason ban in the wake of the allegations.
 

One of the ESPN sources says the recruits also gave the NCAA details about cash McGee allegedly gave them for the strippers, saying recruits and players alike were given between $200 and $500 and that McGee also had a stack of bills for his own use. The story says McGee, now an Uber driver in Kansas City, told reporters to speak to his lawyer when asked about the allegations.
