BIG 12

To Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby, the best-case scenario from the FBI investigation into corruption in college basketball, which involving some schools in his own conference, is for the sport to emerge from it in a better place than it was before. “I hope that whatever the processes, whether it’s the FBI or NCAA or institutional type things, I hope that whatever is done makes college basketball a better sport,” Bowlsby said. “I think (basketball) has all the best part of college athletics and all the worst part of college athletics.” The worst parts have been in the news for about 1 1/2 years, starting with the announcement of a years-long FBI investigation with wiretaps, recordings and financial records that uncovered evidence of widespread corruption involving men’s basketball programs, shoe companies and agents. Ten were arrested, including assistant coaches at Oklahoma State, Auburn, Arizona and Southern California. – BLAIR KERKHOFF,  kansascity – Read More
