The Louisville Cardinals celebrate winning the 2013 NCAA Men's Final Four Championship at the Georgia Dome on April 8, 2013.

The University of Louisville will vacate its 2013 national basketball championship as part of a ruling handed down by the NCAA Tuesday. 

According to an NCAA release, Louisville must vacate men’s basketball records in which student-athletes competed while ineligible during the 2011-12 through 2014-15 academic years.

The ruling also states that Louisville must repay money earned through its appearances at the NCAA tournament in years 2012-15. 

The school's interim president Greg Postel said in a statement that he strongly disagreed with the ruling.

According to Bleacher report, the NCAA infractions committee previously ruled that assistant coach Andre McGee arranged for strip teases and sex acts for potential recruits.
