Boys can never just be boys when they’re in the presence of girls. Especially when these girls are professional flashers paid to take their clothes off in university locker rooms. Somehow the NCAA has deemed that sexual favors and lap dances provided by strippers give the same super human edge as steroids over a competitor on the court. So they’ve been banned from being used if you decide to put a basketball jersey on for Louisville. Both steroids and strippers. But that didn’t stop one staff member from providing the 2013’s team with escorts. A very smart man that probably thought he had found a loophole until some people started naming who got a handy during practice.
Along with the championship, Louisville will be forced to vacate 123 victories and return millions of dollars to the NCAA. In hopes of avoiding the NCAA’s wrath, Louisville self-imposed a post season ban in 2016. Coach Rick Pitino, who pled ignorance of the arrangement between his staffer and the escort, managed to survive the scandal. But he lost his job last year after a different, much less salacious scandal emerged at UofL.
Escort Katrina Powell’s statement:
He was just telling me the type of girls that he wanted. He wanted white girls with big butts and big breasts and girls that could squirt to the ceiling and you know, things like that.”
Honestly this “scandal” is actually pretty common in college and anywhere where athletes are already making or are projected to make millions. Instagram model is actually code word for escort. If a woman has “bookings available” in her bio with no talent other than taking pictures, what exactly did you think you were paying to receive? Women will either ask their friends or find a few DTF girls to ask if they want to make quick cash. Who is really surprised by strapped for cash college girls using their body to make money? A woman stripping her way through college either ends in graduating with a degree or graduating to single motherhood with a side of alcohol addiction. It was pretty much a referral prostitution ring being run on social media and an entire college basketball team was caught with their pants down. They probably should have waited for an NBA contract before banging rookie hookers at the Hilton nearby.
