College basketball was rocked by scandal last week, as Yahoo published documents from the FBI’s investigation into alleged corruption in college basketball. The documents level charges at the sport’s top programs, including Duke, North Carolina, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan State, Texas and USC. Among the most intriguing of the documents were expense reports from ASM employee (agent) Christian Dawkins, who was seeking reimbursement for thousands of dollars he said he paid to college and high school players and their families. On the list was Donovan Mitchell, Utah Jazz, who was just named Rookie of the Month for the third time.
The Jazz beat Sacramento Saturday night 98-91. It was their second win in two nights after starting 1-2 out of the All-Star Break. Also, Joe Ingles, Donovan Mitchell and Royce O’Neale are sharing some great photos on Instagram. Everyone should follow Ingles on Twitter and Instagram.
