LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino remains defiant that his program will survive the allegations in a book by an escort claiming that former Cardinals staffer Andre McGee hired her and other dancers to strip and have sex with recruits and players.

Pitino said Tuesday that the Cardinals "will get through this the right way."

The coach told a packed room at a tipoff luncheon that he understands the motivation behind Katina Powell's book "Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen," but questions the need for the alleged activities given the talent his program has produced.
