According to a scathing ESPN "Outside the Lines" report, five former players and recruits admitted that they were indeed in attendance at sex parties where strippers were present, all masterminded by coach Andre McGee. Some of the boldest claims surround two former Louisville stars.

Lindsay Powell, 24 and Rod Ni Powell, 22, both daughters of Katina Powell, claim they were paid $100 for sex with former star point guard Russ Smith and All American Montrezl Harrell.

Lindsay Powell, 24, Katina’s daughter, told Outside the Lines she danced at multiple parties and was paid $100 to have sex with former Louisville point guard Russ Smith, part of the Cardinals’ 2013 NCAA championship team and now a player with the Memphis Grizzlies. Katina Powell’s book also mentions the allegation involving Smith, who did not respond to requests for comment.

“I believe that McGee came to my mom and said something to her about it, and my mom came to me and I was like ‘OK,’ and we went in another room and we had sex,” Lindsay Powell said.

During another party, Rod Ni Powell, 22, another daughter of Katina’s, said she was paid to have sex with former Cardinals player Montrezl Harrell, a power forward who now plays for the Houston Rockets. Katina Powell told Outside the Lines and wrote in her book that Harrell, who played with Louisville from 2012-15, had sex paid for by McGee as a recruit and as a player.

“Montrezl was there, and I don’t know, I guess he felt left out. He just kind of asked me if I would do it, and I did it. I got paid maybe $100, maybe a little more,” Rod Ni Powell said.

Harrell declined comment, and has stuck to the story that he had a girlfriend and spent most of his time off campus.
