UofL MEN'S BASKETBALL | Cards Release NCAA Notice of Allegations

10/20/2016 08:21 PM

The University of Louisville released its NCAA Notice of Allegations on Thursday morning.

The notice goes into detail of what took place during the alleged Louisville men’s basketball sex scandal that happened between 2010 and 2014.

The document says the University of Louisville committed four “Level One” violations.

Andre McGee, the former Louisville assistant coach and director of basketball operations, was charged with two of the violations. One of the violations was that allegedly McGee “arranged for and/or provided impermissible inducements, offers and/or extra benefits in the form of adult entertainment, sex acts and/or cash at Billy Mindardi Hall (Minardi), a campus dormitory, or Louisville, Kentucky, hotels to at least 17 then men’s basketball prospective and/or current student-athletes, two then nonscholastic men’s basketball coaches and one then men’s basketball prospective student-athlete’s friend. The value of the impermissible inducements, offers and/or extra benefits was at least $5,400.”

Another former assistant coach, Brandon Williams, was given a violation for failure to provide information to investigators.

Also, head coach Rick Pitino received one of the “Level One” violations for failing “to demonstrate that he monitored a member of his staff, resulting from underlying Level I violations.”

The university has 90 days to respond to the NCAA’s allegations. Once it does, the NCAA has 60 days to respond to Louisville’s rebuttal.
