Earlier this year, the NCAA has handed down its penalties for Louisville basketball following the program's escort scandal that broke in 2015.

The Louisville scandal emerged after local madame Katina Powell published a book called Breaking Cardinal Rules, outlining the parties thrown for Louisville basketball recruits featuring escorts and alcohol, organized by former U of L assistant Andre McGee.

Although Louisville fans may have thought they were clear of any controversy involving Powell, she's back in the news after donning a full Kentucky outfit ahead of the Louisville-Kentucky game today.

Powell is definitely trying to stir up some controversy here.

Louisville and Kentucky tipped at 1 p.m. ET and are midway through the first half. Kentucky leads 21-19 with just under eight minutes to play.
