…and here come the denials. Four days after the UofL stripper scandal broke, former Louisville players continue to deny Katina Powell’s story. The latest is Montrezl Harrell, who is quoted by the Houston Chronicle saying he had no knowledge of the scandal:
“I don’t know anything about any of that,” Harrell said. “Apparently, my name is in there. I don’t have anything to do with that. U of L is doing their job, holding an investigation, looking at it. That’s where I’m leaving it. Simple as that.”
Harrell is a rookie for the Rockets, and claims he never heard or saw a party like the ones described in the book, although he’s mentioned in the book several times. Powell even said he had a certain joke he would keep making with the escorts that’s not safe for us to share.
“Somebody told me my name was in there,” Harrell said. “It goes without saying, I don’t know anything about it. I didn’t too much stay at the dorm. I stayed off campus. I had a girlfriend off campus.”
Keep toeing that company line, Montrezl.
