i remember a scene in spike lee’s “he got game”.
jesus shuttlesworth went to look at a college trying to recruit him.
well he ended up having a 3some with two snow bunnies.
check it out sometime.
so the life of a potential pre baller wolf is usually pretty exciting.
more often than not,
they are treated like a god in the recruitment process.
every college will lay down the red carpet just so they will sign on the dotted lines.
sometimes the colleges will do just about “anything”.
like hire an escort hoe and her cubs to fuck the pen in their hand?
well in a new book called,
“breaking cardinal rules: basketball and the escort queen”,
it takes us deep into the alleged recruiting process at the university of louisville.
i read this article on prnewswire and well…
Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Dick Cady and escort Katina Powell have written an expose of recruiting tactics used in the basketball program at University of Louisville, based on Powell’s experience providing sexual services at the school.
Breaking Cardinal Rules explores the length that a storied basketball program will go to secure the nation’s top high school basketball talent.
“I looked in those young faces, and their eyes reflected their fear and loss of innocence. (We’ve) done so many recruits, it is sickening,” Powell laments. Escorting, dancing and sex was Powell’s occupation. She ran the business with a troupe of strippers, including her own daughters.
Powell kept five journals with details of her escort escapades, sexual encounters, murdered relatives and activities at the University of Louisville. Most of the U of L services she provided took place in the men’s dormitory where basketball players reside. Her main contact and the man who paid for her services–the school’s former director of basketball operations and former graduate assistant, Andre McGee–kept Powell and her girls busy from 2010 to 2014. She has hundreds of text exchanges with him to set up her services as well as pictures of her girls with players and recruits.
Powell does not present a sympathetic character. Her life is full of contradictions. She has no remorse for her life or the choices she has made. Her story is true, and Breaking Cardinal Rules goes into firsthand and graphic detail. “This story needs to be told,” says publisher Patricia Keiffner.
and then more details via ibj.com:
At those parties, Powell said, high school-age recruits were offered alcohol by McGee, who also arranged additional payment to her and her dancers if the recruits wanted to have sex with them.
In the book, Powell said that over time, she received more than $10,000 for supplying women for parties. That does not include the hundreds of one dollar bills thrown at the strippers by McGee, the recruits and players or the cash paid to the women who had sex with the recruits afterward, Powell added.
“I felt like I was part of the recruitment team. A lot of them players went to Louisville because of me,” Powell said in the book.
Powell said she has no regrets about the parties.
“I didn’t look at it as being wrong,” she said. “I looked at it as surviving.”
But later she had some misgivings.
“The only time I viewed it as being wrong is when I looked at the recruits’ faces when they were getting the sex,” Powell said. “It kind of made you feel bad that you have this young guy coming in to a college campus thinking he’s going to have a little fun, not knowing he’s going to have two or three girls on him at one time, he’s going to get alcohol, he’s going to get anything he wants or that they offer at that time.”
Powell describes in the book how one recruit was hustled out as his mother, not knowing what was going on, came to retrieve him.
After a couple of years providing strippers for the basketball players, Powell said in the book, she became irritated about increasing requests from McGee, the former University of Louisville basketball staffer.
In a journal entry, she wrote: “I promise I’m waiting for the right time to take these bastards down. … I just have to be smart and patient as well. At the right time, when I decide to tell my story, I will tell my story.”
Powell told IBJ that she didn’t mean that journal entry to be vindictive. But if what she and her fellow escorts were doing came to light, she said, she wanted people to know that the requests for these services were coming from inside the University of Louisville.
and if she cares about getting sued:
Powell said she has no fear of getting sued over the book.
“What would I get in trouble for? Telling the truth?” Powell said.
She said she thinks the University of Louisville should shoulder most of the blame for what happened, pointing out that McGee approached her through an intermediary—a friend of Powell’s who runs a Louisville barbershop.
“[The university] came to me and asked me to do it,” Powell said. “That’s how they got their recruits. Everybody involved was to blame, but at any time the university could have stopped it.”
this is what katrina powell looks like:
she looks like what i think a “trap queen” would look like.
are we shocked this happens?
the things i hear that go down at college campuses with pre-baller wolves.
the things i hear that go down with the dl ones…
my thing is,
she was/is a hoe that was paid for her services…
Why is she talking now?
now don’t get me wrong,
hoes always tell the best stories,
but she seems upset in 2015.
i hate a hoe who suddenly gets a conscience.
she wasn’t upset when she was getting paid to get banged out by under-aged wolves.
isn’t pussy supposed to be power?)
she also wasn’t upset when she was watching/listening to her cubs getting banged out either.
i woulda “thunk” the old school hoes were better at keeping secrets.
i guess not.
either way it won’t stop me from reading!
