LOUISVILLE: Escort Katina Powell said she has no proof that Coach Rick Pitino knew that a former Cardinals staffer hired her and other dancers to strip and have sex with former recruits and players.

But Powell said on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that with “a boatload” of recruits and dancers, “loud music, alcohol, security, cameras” in a campus dormitory, “how could Rick not know?”

In her first interview since the release of her book earlier this month, “Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen,” Powell said that the coach had to be aware of some of the 22 shows she alleges that former staffer Andre McGee paid for and took place from 2010-14.

Pitino has denied knowledge of the activities that Powell alleges in her book.

OHIO STATE: The No. 1 Buckeyes will start quarterback J.T. Barrett in Saturday’s game against Rutgers, replacing Cardale Jones, according to Coach Urban Meyer.

Barrett lost the starting job to Jones following a closely watched quarterback battle in the offseason for the defending national champions. But Jones has struggled to find the form that helped him lead the Buckeyes to the national title last season.

Jones has just seven touchdowns against five picks this season. He threw for just 84 yards in last week’s win over Penn State.

Barrett, on the other hand, has come on in recent weeks, with seven total touchdowns in the last two games.
