UNC, Duke, NC State named in federal documents detailing potential NCAA violations


The FBI has college basketball under an intense microscope and has uncovered some damning information.

Three Big Ten teams were implicated in the Yahoo report: Michigan State, Maryland and Penn State.

A Yahoo! Sports report revealed on Friday morning that Miles Bridges' mother was the recipient of impermissible benefits from former agent Andy Miller and associate Christian Dawkins.

Yahoo! Sports obtained hundreds of pages from an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe which appear to show ASM Sports employees working with programs and players to ultimately get them to sign with the agency.

Markelle Fultz - along with a slew of huge names and top college basketball programs - have been named in a bombshell report into NCAA hoops corruption involving illegal payouts to players.

Former and current South Carolina Gamecocks men's basketball players have been named in a series of documents that details monies given by a sports agency that is now under NCAA review, according to Yahoo!

Twitter is already sounding off on the report and they are siding with the players who they feel will take the brunt of the blame instead of the schools and coaches who make millions of dollars from the student-athletes. The men are among 10 people who were charged with wire fraud in September after the government accused them of funneling money from Adidas to the families of high-profile recruits.

Nadkarni said, "We have looked up medical literature from all over the world and it is the largest to be excised successfully". Pal's surgery took a little over six hours to complete and required the skilled hands of five surgeons, Nadkarni included.

In a balance sheet belonging to ASM, former NC State player Dennis Smith Jr. was listed under the subheading, "Loan to Players". VanVleet now plays with the Toronto Raptors in the National Basketball Association.

NCAA president Mark Emmert released a statement regarding the Yahoo!

The report shows VanVleet received $1,000 from a sports agency, and it's against NCAA rules for players to be paid. It listed several who were in high school or college as receiving four-figure and five-figure payments from ASM Sports.

The accusations could have implications for college basketball teams across the country.

But, if they are being "defrauded", it's only because of archaic NCAA rules, which the university administrators could easily band together to change, that are essentially created to try to prevent flooding water from finding a way.

"With these latest allegations, it's clear this work is more important now than ever", the NCAA president said. "The Board and I are completely committed to making transformational changes to the game and ensuring all involved in college basketball do so with integrity", Emmert said.
