Katina Powell to Meet with the NCAA Again

Katina Powell, who sits at the center of Louisville's stripper scandal, will reportedly meet with the NCAA again.

According to ESPN:

"Ms. Powell was contacted by the NCAA to meet to answer questions that have arisen during the course of the investigation," attorney Larry Wilder said. "It seems that the NCAA is looking to close some of the newly opened doors."

Powell first spoke with NCAA investigators in mid-November and has allowed them to review her personal journals and phone records, which served as the foundation for her tell-all book, "Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen."

"When the NCAA met with Ms. Powell, initially she gave them access to her journals in order to corroborate her prior statements," Wilder said.

The book details almost two dozen stripping and sex parties from 2010 to 2014 inside Louisville's Billy Minardi Hall, the on-campus dorm for athletes and other students named for the late brother-in-law of Cardinals basketball coach Rick Pitino.

In October, five former Louisville basketball players and recruits told Outside the Lines that they attended parties at Minardi Hall that included strippers paid for by the team's former graduate assistant coach, Andre McGee. One former player said he had sex with a dancer after McGee paid her.

A dancer, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said she was paid roughly $300 for a night of stripping and one sexual encounter with a recruit.
