Under the table or On the Table, it's Louisville
In an article in the Kansas City Star, Louisville coach Rick Pitino encourages UMKC’s Andre McGee to discuss sex party allegations at Louisville where McGee is now an assistant. It looks like Pitino is preparing to throw McGee under the bus. Former Cardinals recruit JaQuan Lyle, now an Ohio State freshman, has confirmed the “gist of allegations” detailed during a meeting earlier this month with the NCAA. The bigger question is where did an assistant coach get $10,000 to pay for the services of escorts as claimed by former escort Katina Powell?
In an equally dark event, Rick Pirino admitted to having consensual sex with Karen Sypher at a Louisville restaurant, Porcini's, where he'd been drinking on Aug. 1, 2003. He also told police that he later gave Sypher $3,000 to have an abortion, according to Louisville Metro Police reports received from the Kentucky Open Records Act during an extortion trial.
LetsGoDU has no opinion on former escort Patina Powell's claims against Louisville, but we recommend readers take a shower if they eat at table number 5 at Porcini's.
