Five former University of Louisville basketball players and recruits told Outside the Lines that they have attend campus dorm parties from 2010-14 that strippers paid by the team's former graduate assistant coach, Andre McGee.

One of the former players even said that he had sex with a paid stripper. Three of the five players said that they have attended parties as recruits and Louisville players.

"Said one of the recruits who ultimately signed to play elsewhere: "I knew they weren't college girls. It was crazy. It was like I was in a strip club." via

All of this was revealed in a book called "Breaking Cardinals Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen," which was published by "self-described former escort" Katina Powell. The book reveals that there were nearly two dozen strip and sex parties from 2010-14 inside Billy Minardi Hall on Louisville's campus.

Powell told Indianapolis Business Journal Book Publishing that McGee put the parties together and paid her $10,000 for bring dancers.

McGee also supplied cash for "side deals," which included sex with some recruits, guardians who accompanied them on visits, and some Louisville players. via

It's not looking good for the Cardinals.
