With news breaking this afternoon, following a press conference by the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, college basketball--months away from the first game's tip-off--has captured national attention. Four assistant basketball coaches at NCAA Division I programs, including coaches at Arizona, Auburn, Oklahoma State, and Southern California, are charged with federal bribery, fraud and other corruption charges.

Complaint vs. Chuck Person (Auburn)

Complaint vs. Lamont Evans (Oklahoma State), Emmanuel Richardson (Arizona), and Anthony Bland (USC)

A third complaint, alleged against an Adidas executive for wire fraud and money laundering, likely implicates Louisville's basketball program.

Every team implicated, except for Auburn, appeared in last season's NCAA tournament. An investigation of this magnitude is sure to shake up college basketball.
