MSU basketball named in federal corruption investigation

Michigan State University could potentially face NCAA ramifications in a federal corruption investigation probing at least 20 Division I basketball programs and more than 25 players.

Michigan State head men's basketball coach Tom Izzo said, "We are aware of the report in Yahoo!" "While we will cooperate with any and all investigations, we have no reason to believe that I, any member of our staff or student-athlete did anything in violation of NCAA rules".

Bill Beekman, MSU's interim athletic director, also released a statement that was included in Solari's piece, echoing Izzo's previous statement. We have proactively contacted the NCAA and Big Ten Conference.

Yahoo reported it did not view all of the documents the federal government possesses. Five other high-profile basketball players from Michigan - Josh Jackson, Brian Bowen, Eric Davis, Kyle Kuzma and Monte Morris - also were linked to Dawkins in the documents, per Yahoo. Documents include expense reports, cash advances, and entertainment and travel expenses for high school and college prospects, along with their families, through the agency ASM Sports.

While Michigan State did not have any players listed in the aforementioned article, the mother of Spartans guard Miles Bridges, Cynthia, was part of the focus.

These benefits range from basic meals to tens of thousands of dollars, the report says.

It is still unclear if Miles Bridges ever had knowledge of the meetings between his mother and Dawkins.

Bridges' mother received hundreds of dollars in advances, according to the report.

While some of these expenses could be considered small amounts, Yahoo reports that these could be categorized as extra benefits under NCAA rules.

According to Yahoo Sports, they reached out to dozens of programs tied to the documents but only the coach from Xavier has elected to release a statement.

At this time, the NCAA has been in contact with the feds regarding this case but it is not certain how the NCAA plans on responding.
