(AP) -- An escort's allegations in a tell-all book that former Louisville men's basketball staffer Andre McGee hired her to provide dancers to strip and have sex with Cardinals recruits, their fathers and players stunned the college basketball world when word of its pending release surfaced a week ago.
Four investigations have been launched, two this week, to review Katina Powell's allegations in the book, "Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen." Powell said in the book that three of her daughters were among those who danced with her in a dormitory on Louisville's campus, creating a lingering unease and uncertainty looming over Rick Pitino's program.
With questions mounting about who did what, who knew what and when, Louisville President James Ramsey stressed the need for patience as the investigations move forward. Ramsey said Thursday in a statement that, "We must, as one university, continue doing the work we do to move our university and our community forward."
