The Kansas City man who allegedly paid brothers Kareem and Jaron Rush, and others, leading to their suspensions, has been indicted by federal authorities. Amateur basketball coach Myron Piggie has been charged with fraud against four universities, including the University of Missouri, where Kareem Rush is a freshman. Kareem Rush, and his brother Jaron at UCLA, each served NCAA suspensions this season for allegedly receiving money from Piggie. The fraud charges are based on the fact that Piggie’s actions cost the universities the honest services of these players, who had received scholarships. The universities also each paid for investigations into these matters. Piggie will have a bond hearing Monday. He has also been indicted on firearm and other charges. If convicted only in the basketball case, he would face up to 49 years in prison.
