Louisville announces postseason ban for men's basketball

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The president of Louisville announced a one-year postseason ban Friday for the Cardinals men's basketball team amid ongoing investigations into a sex scandal, a decision that stunned coach Rick Pitino.

President James Ramsey said at a news conference that an investigation revealed violations did occur when the school reviewed allegations by an escort that a former Louisville staffer paid her and other dancers to strip and have sex with recruits and players.
