Mom of MSU basketball's Miles Bridges linked to federal corruption probe

Report: FBI probe docs list range of payments to top players UK: No eligibility issues or rules violations for current players and staff

Kentucky leading scorer Kevin Knox and former players Bam Adebayo and Nerlens Noel were among the players mentioned in a report by Yahoo Sports.

These benefits range from basic meals to tens of thousands of dollars, the report says.

Two Auburn players have also been suspended, and USC point guard De'Anthony Melton has withdrawn from school amid reported ties to the scandal. "Simply put, people who engage in this kind of behavior have no place in college sports", NCAA President Mark Emmert said in a release.

Emmert said the formation this past October of an independent Commission on College Basketball meant to provide recommendations on cleaning up the sport.

"With these latest allegations, it's clear this work is more important now than ever", Emmert said. "I haven't been in the college game in a long time so I probably don't fully understand it but I'm sure it happens". Those spreadsheets cast a wide net throughout college basketball. But that doesn't mean that the NCAA or the National Basketball Association, or whoever, should try to fix it.

One can forgive Louisville fans, whose program was unfairly made the face of the Federal Bureau of Investigation scandal for five months, for a collective sense of exuberance when it became apparent they had lots of company. And to do away with the one-and-done rule. However, if the report is only the tip of the iceberg, then exactly what is revealed once we see the entire iceberg could indeed be a game-changer and reshape college hoops and recruiting as we now know it. Christian Dawkins, a former employee of the agency, ASM Sports, is one of the defendants in the federal prosecutors' case.

Kyle Kuzma (2016-17 Utah forward) - $9,500.

To be clear, no one is alleging anyone at SC gave Dozier or Bowen money or that any of the benefits they allegedly received were meant to persuade them to go to SC.

In the television show The Wire, after Avon Barksdale was arrested and locked up, drugs didn't stop getting dealt on Baltimore street corners.

The documents do not appear to indicate that the colleges were involved with or knew of the payments. Maybe the next time he gets interviewed, the questions will be "Did you take $10,000 before you were allowed to?" instead of "Why does your jumpshot form resemble a little kid trying to use a Wiffleball bat to knock his frisbee out of a tree?" And that likely comes by under-the-table money.

The more immediate concern for the NCAA is how it's going to handle the allegations against players on teams who will likely play in next month's NCAA tournament. Selection Sunday is March 11.

"We never took any money".

And it seems there are plenty more revelations to come - with names being named along the way.

The report says a ASM balance sheet revealed accounts through December 31, 2015 with the subhead "Loans to Players". Both Miller and Dawkins are subjects in an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into college basketball corruption.
