Guard, group received big money in USD point-shaving scandal

May 23, 2013 |
Remember the University of San Diego point-shaving story that broke back in 2011?

A recent article by Rob Dauster at NBCSports.com reveals Torero's guard Brandon Johnson, who was the main culprit in the scandal, and the group behind the point-shaving scandal, were paid quite well for their part in the game-fixing.

Johnson, who is the school's leader in points and assists, would receive as much as $10,000 per game for his role in the wrongdoing. With the help of the Torero's star player, the group behind the point-shaving took home more than $120,000.00.

An excerpt from the article via the FBI report:



For participating in the incident, Johnson received a sentence of six months in federal prison back in March and will begin the sentence May 31.
