Six basketball and football players from the University of Toledo and two men from the Detroit area have been indicted on charges of "conspiracy to commit sports bribery" for shaving points between 2004 and 2006.
The indictment alleges that the two businessmen from the Detroit Metro area wagered over $400,000 on basketball games in which the point-shaving may have occurred. The athletes involved are point guard Keith Triplett, forward Anton Currie, guard Kashif Payne, and running backs Adam Cuomo, Harvey McDougle, and Quinton Broussard. The investigation actually dates back to 2007, when McDougle and a mysterious gambler named "Gary" were first accused of point shaving, but those charges were eventually dropped ... until now. (McDougle was originally accused of helping to recruit other players to the scheme.) I guess the Feds are nothing if not persistent.
