Louisville Basketball Confirms It Is Being Investigated By FBI


We’re only a few hours into a college basketball story that appears more widespread with each passing minute. After a press conference this morning confirmed the arrest of 10 people, including  four assistant college basketball coaches and an adidas executive, more chips continue to fall.

The latest is a monumental, if unsurprising addition to the growing list of teams under FBI investigation.

The Louisville basketball program has officially confirmed that it is one of the schools that was unnamed but is part of the investigation.

Louisville is coming off some major penalties from the NCAA for their involvement in getting prostitutes for potential recruits and players.

One of the players suspected to be implicated in the investigation is Brian Bowen. The talented recruit committed to Louisville, and was the subject of a quote from head coach Rick Pitino that sheds light on the breadth of the bribery and corruption charges being investigated.

More universities are sure to come forward. Stay tuned.
