Former queen madam and escort Katina Powell, who co-authored the newly released book accusing Louisville basketball staffer Andre McGee of hiring her to provide strippers and escorts for recruits and players, is claiming that she initially took her story to the NCAA in March but was brushed off.

“I called the NCAA in mid-March,” Powell said, via the Indianapolis Business Journal. “I spoke with a young white guy, and I was telling him that I had a story about a college that was trading sex and all that stuff for money.”

The book, “Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen,” details years of alleged sex and strippers in Louisville dorms. Powell said she didn’t trust anyone at Louisville with the information.

“I wanted someone to tell me who I needed to talk to. It’s the NCAA. They know everything that has to do with college basketball,” Powell said. “I just wanted to know who could I talk to … about what was going on about the college, and it didn’t happen.

“They could have investigated or they could have told me what to do, who to talk to or who to tell my story to,” Powell added. “They could have told me something. But they didn’t tell me anything. They didn’t want to hear anything — at all.”
