A self-proclaimed prostitute says she was told that University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino knew she and other escorts were being paid to have sex with players and recruits. “You have players that are very, very loyal to Pitino,” she said. “And if they thought anything was wrong or anyone was going to get in trouble, I’m pretty sure they would have gone back to report to Pitino. When I would ask (U of L staffer Andre McGee), ‘Does Pitino know about this?’ he would laugh and say, ‘Rick knows about everything.'” In a press conference on Friday, Pitino denied any knowledge of the alleged activity, saying he first heard of the claims when the publishing company for Powell’s book, “Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen,” reached out to U of L through Indiana University’s athletics department to identify a player in one of Powell’s pictures. – Jeff Greer, The Courier-Journal, Read More

The Big 12 acknowledged an officiating error occurred during Oklahoma State’s 36-34 victory against Kansas State on Saturday at Boone Pickens Stadium. “Disciplinary actions will be addressed with both the field officials and chain crew,” said Walt Anderson, Supervisor of the League’s Officials in a statement released by the Big 12. The mistake took place late in the second quarter when the chains were incorrectly set following a holding penalty. Oklahoma State was penalized for holding on a first-and-10 play from the K-State 45. The next play should have been first-and-20 from the OSU 45. Instead, it was first-and-15, because the first-down marker was mistakenly moved back five yards with the 10-yard penalty instead of staying in its original place. – Kellis Robinett, Kansas City Star, Read More

Several Yale student-athletes have been diagnosed with MRSA, a strain of staphylococcus infection that has impacted both the baseball and women’s crew teams.

Christopher Pecora, Director of Sports Medicine, did not confirm the infection, but said Yale Facilities is “performing all the necessary steps, under guidelines of the Yale Office of Environmental Health and Safety, to complete the cleaning and sanitizing process” of Yale’s baseball and strength training facilities. – Daniela Brighenti, Yale News, Read More
