Powell 'so sorry' for Louisville fallout

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."

Sanctions won't hurt Cards with recruits
