Louisville Will Reportedly Receive NCAA's Notice of Allegations This Week

According to a report from the Courier-Journal, the University of Louisville is expected to receive a notice of allegations from the NCAA on Thursday.

The allegations will be the result of the NCAA's examination into claims made by Katina Powell in the book Breaking Cardinal Rules.

Here's an excerpt from the CJ:

After a yearlong investigation, the NCAA this week is expected to provide the University of Louisville with a notice of allegations of violations in its men’s basketball program and the university is expected to make them public Thursday, according to sources familiar with the probe.

A notice of allegations outlines the rules that the institution is alleged to have broken and describes the facts of the case. Louisville's notice will set out findings from the NCAA's investigation of self-proclaimed escort Katina Powell's claims that former U of L staffer Andre McGee paid her and other escorts thousands of dollars and gave them game tickets from 2010-14 in exchange for them providing sex with and dancing for recruits and players.

The university acknowledged in February that it was "reasonable to conclude" violations occurred, which prompted then-President James Ramsey to self-impose a postseason ban. U of L later announced additional voluntary penalties, including restrictions on recruiting and campus visits for prospects as well as a reduction of four basketball scholarships over two years.

John Karman, a university spokesman, declined to comment on when the allegations are expected or will be announced, and Larry Benz, chairman of the board of trustees, said he didn’t know that either was set for this week. Larry Wilder, one of Powell’s lawyers, said he had heard the university might receive the allegations this week.
