College basketball will again be the focus in a New York federal courtroom as the second of three trials related to corruption in the sport begins on Monday. One of the defense attorneys involved in next week’s federal criminal trial related to college basketball corruption has promised to “pull back the curtains” on the sport’s ugly underworld. Christian Dawkins, a former runner for NBA agent Andy Miller, and Merl Code, a former Adidas consultant, are charged with allegedly bribing five assistant coaches from six universities to influence their players to sign with Dawkins’ fledgling sports management business and certain financial advisers once they turned pro. In a Friday pretrial ruling, U.S. District Court Judge Edgardo Ramos granted a federal prosecutors’ motion precluding Arizona coach Sean Miller and LSU coach Will Wade from testifying. Steven Haney, attorney for former agent-runner Christian Dawkins, had subpoenaed Miller and Wade arguing that wiretap evidence would show Dawkins’ intent while also showing signs of “systematic cheating at the highest level.” “The evidence establishes very clearly that Sean Miller is paying players at Arizona,” Haney said during Friday morning’s hearing. – Mark Schlabach, espn – Read More
