Pitino was mum about the allegations on Saturday, but questions continue to swirl after the online release of Katrina Powell’s book, ”Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen.” The 104-page book was published by an affiliate of the Indianapolis Business Journal and is scheduled for release Oct. 12, though the publisher said it could be sooner.
