LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) - Former University of Louisville basketball players are planning to sue the NCAA over its decision to vacate more than 100 wins stemming from the school's escort scandal, according to a report.

The Courier-Journal reports former players Luke Hancock and Tim Henderson have confirmed they are among the players who will be plaintiffs in the lawsuit.

Hancock told a Louisville radio station players are "fed up" with the NCAA's decision, which also resulted in the vacation of the team's 2013 championship. He did not list all the players involved in the lawsuit.

Hancock was named most outstanding player of the NCAA Tournament in 2013 when the Cardinals beat the Michigan Wolverines in the Final Four.

As of late Tuesday afternoon, the lawsuit was not officially filed in state or federal courts.

The players are expected to hold a news conference Wednesday.
