College hoops point-shaving
College basketball has seen no worse humiliation than the 1951 point-shaving scandal involving players on several teams. Manhattan College center Junius Kellogg's report of a bribe offered by a teammate helped uncover the scandal. When all was investigated and the indictments were handed out, the numbers were staggering. From 1947 to '51, 86 games were fixed and 35 active and former players were accused of partaking in the gambling. Twenty players, as well as 14 known gamblers, were indicted and convicted.
