Powell sorry for Louisville fallout, says ordeal 'worth it'

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Katina Powell said Saturday that she is "so sorry" about the fallout of the sex scandal that resulted in sanctions against Louisville's basketball program, but added that her experience was "worth surviving."

In her 2015 book, "Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen," Powell alleged that former Cardinals staffer Andre McGee hired her and other dancers to strip and have sex with recruits and players. Several investigations followed, including one by the NCAA that resulted in a decision Thursday to suspend coach Rick Pitino and levy other penalties against Louisville. The NCAA described the activities as "repugnant."

Powell reiterated that money was her sole motivation for writing the book during a nearly hour-long Facebook Live interview on Saturday with comedian Jason English that was later removed. She said she has dealt with depression since the scandal, but added that everything "was very well worth it." She's even been approached about a possible movie and a second book.
