Seton Hall responds to allegations in Yahoo report

Kentucky basketball addresses allegations of rules violations Kentucky basketball addresses allegations of rules violations

The report was based on internal documents obtained from ASM Sports, a company founded by former NBA agent Andy Miller raided in September by the FBI as part of the ongoing federal investigation of corruption in college basketball, according to Yahoo. The Utah fans displayed signs like "Need Money?"

The corruption case involving NCAA basketball and players receiving loans and payments took a turn toward Penn State Friday morning.

Duke's Wendell Carter and Kentucky's Kevin Knox may have received free meals, according to documents.

Josh Jackson told azcentral.com that he did not "recall" being approached by the ASM Sports Agency mentioned in the story, and that he had not been in contact with his mother regarding the story.

Keep in mind we're dealing with the NCAA here.

Should the information be made public before or during the NCAA Tournament, the NCAA would be faced with potentially having to declare some of the nation's top players ineligible and impose sanctions on numerous game's most recognizable programs. Alabama is 17-11 and on the NCAA tournament bubble. In a statement, Maryland Coach Mark Turgeon denied having any relationship with Miller, the agent whose company produced these records. Line items in four pages of documents released by Yahoo showed some five-figure payments.

The investigation, conducted by the FBI, has been going on for years, with authorities monitoring several targets, including former National Basketball Association agent Andy Miller, his former associate Christian Dawkins, and his agency, ASM Sports. "Wouldn't know him if he walked into the room today", Turgeon said.

The games went on under the dark cloud hanging over the sport, the season playing out while everyone wondered when the other sneaker would drop.

Ken Tighe, a Terrapins season ticket holder since 2002, said college basketball has an issue that needs to be addressed. I explained why, I think, in great detail.

MI coach John Beilein offered a simple solution.

The problem? Play now and pay later?

Texas's Eric Davis Jr., who may have received $1,500.

"The entire infrastructure of amateur athletics, especially basketball, is just as dirty as can be", Randolph said. "It's about time it surfaced". "Personally, I welcome the scrutiny on the sport of men's basketball because the behavior of some agents, along with reports of other illegal recruiting activities, is hurting the sport".

"It's certainly not a good day for us", Wright said.

Every time there is another bad story out of college sports, and the one on Friday from Yahoo Sports about corruption in college basketball uncovered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation might be as bad as it gets, I think about the famous scene at the end of the Al Pacino movie "And Justice For All", when Pacino's lawyer character is told by a corrupt judge that he's out of order.

"We take these allegations very seriously, and are working to gather more information about this situation. He will. The athletic department is on top of it and will respond to it".
