College Hoop Stars Busted for Fixing Games?

…San Diego assistant coach Thaddeus Brown and players Brandon Johnson and Brandon Dowry, plus seven others, have been indicted on charges of fixing college basketball games…Johnson is the school’s all-time leader in points and assists. According to the allegations, he and his co-conspirators worked to affect the outcome of an unspecified February 2010 game, while Dowry and Brown attempted to recruit a player for the purposes of fixing a game against UC-Riverside. It’s also alleged that Johnson, in 2011 while playing in the NBA D-League, tried to get a current San Diego player to join the cause. The indictment sprouted from what was originally an investigation into San Diego marijuana distribution. The 10 indictees were charged with conspiracy to distribute marijuana in addition to the sports bribery charges.

The hell with fixing the game for a recruit! They should get together some guys in Vegas and fix the game to win some money! The best players control the score of every game. Just throw up a few bricks and bet against your team to win…it’s a no-brainer. By the way, this is the University of San Diego, not the SDSU team that went to the elite 8. As for the pot dealing…that’s just another weird turn in the story. The bottom lne is these guys were busted.
