Day five of the FBI trial into the corruption of college basketball is underway in New York. Brian Bowen Sr. got things started this morning as he continues direct questioning from the prosecution.

Law360.com reporter Pete Brush is covering the trial and shared some of the elder Bowen’s testimony. It’s unclear what this will mean for Louisville once the NCAA gets involved, but for what it’s worth, Bowen Sr. testifies that he did not inform the Louisville staff that he was accepting money from Adidas.

You’d think that the Louisville staff being in the dark on Adidas payments would help the program in a potential NCAA investigation. But apparently it’s deeper than just Adidas providing money to the Bowen family.

Last week the prosecution claimed that assistant Kenny Johnson gave $1,300 to the father of Brian Bowen, and that then assistant Jordan Fair gave $900 to a different recruit.

Bowen Sr. confirms that he received $1,300 from Johnson
