Trial In UT Point-Shaving Scandal Delayed
A federal judge in Detroit has rescheduled the point-shaving trial involving University of Toledo athletes from later this month to February.
The judge says businessman Ghazi Manni has a new attorney who needs time to prepare. Manni is accused of bribing Toledo players from 2004 to 2006 while placing bets on games. Former Toledo men's basketball players Anton Currie, Kashif Payne and Keith Triplett are facing trial along with Manni. Sentencing is pending for four other former Rockets and businessman Mitchell "Ed" Karam.
