Eric Crawford over at WDRB has more troublesome news for the Louisville basketball program.
You can go ahead and add an unnamed former Cardinal to the growing list of people spilling the beans, along with former recruit Jaquan Lyle. The former player told investigators there were strippers in Billy Minardi Hall on at least one occasion, according to a source. The player did not see any sex take place, but he did see money thrown at the dancers.
While this is only one player talking about a single event in an investigation expected to delve into four years of allegations, it does demonstrate a player acknowledging some of the claims in Powell’s book while taking issue with others. His voice, presumably, would be just one of many in the final report.
This particular player told a university investigator that no sex took place (that he knew of), and that the only money he saw changing hands came in the form of dollar bills thrown at the women in the room, according to the source, who spoke on the condition that the identities of player and source be anonymous.
