An amateur basketball coach in Kansas City is charged with defrauding four major universities, including the University of Missouri, by paying more than 35-thousand dollars to five student athletes to play basketball. The federal indictment against Myron Piggie says he paid 23-hundred dollars to Jaron Rush, now at the University of Missouri; 17-thousand dollars to his brother Jaron, now at UCLA, and a total of 16-thousand-250-dollars to three other players. The indictment says Piggie’s actions deprived the four universities of “tangible rights to honest services” by four of the players. The fifth turned professional without going to college.
