Brian Bowen will not play basketball at UofL

The university announced it's parting ways with two men allegedly involved in the pay-for-play scandal.

LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) – Brian Bowen, the student-athlete named in the FBI investigation into a pay-for-play scheme, will not be playing at the University of Louisville.

Bowen will be provided with written permission to contact another college institution if he wishes to transfer. UofL says, if he decides to stay at UofL he can still receive his athletics scholarship but can’t be allowed to practice with or compete for UofL’s men’s basketball team in the future.
