NCAA accuses Louisville over escort allegations

The NCAA accused Louisville of four violations stemming from its investigation into allegations that a former basketball staffer hired escorts and strippers for sex parties with recruits and players.

The governing body's report Thursday does not mention a lack of institutional control — the most serious violation — but says Coach Rick Pitino failed to monitor staffer Andre McGee.
