Report: Louisville expected to receive NOA on Thursday


Louisville is on its way to taking another step in its NCAA case this week.

According to the Courier-Journal, the school is expected to receive its notice of allegations on Thursday. That will come more than a year after the NCAA began investigating the basketball program after allegations surfaced that players and recruits received improper benefits from escorts in the form of sex and dances.

In her book Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen, Louisville woman Katina Powell stated that former Cardinal director of basketball operations Andre McGee paid her and others to have sex with and dance for UofL players and prospects.

Once the school receives its NOA, it will have 90 days to respond to the NCAA.

Louisville finished last season 23-8 overall and 12-6 in the ACC. In February, the program self-imposed a postseason ban that prevented it from competing in last season’s ACC and NCAA tournaments. The Cardinals also forfeited scholarships.
