Former Duke basketball player Corey Maggette has admitted that he received cash from Kansas City summer league coach Myron Piggie. Maggette’s admission could force Duke to forfeit its national runner-up finish in 1999. Duke may be required to pay the NCAA more than 225-thousand dollars in tournament revenue. Maggette had previously denied the allegation that he received money from Piggie, but made the admission in a sworn statement. Since Maggette has given the statement, the U.S. attorney in Kansas City has withdrawn a request to have Maggette testify about the payments. Magette’s admission may result in a longer jail sentence for Piggie, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy and tax fraud.
