South Carolina MBB Hit With NCAA Notice of Allegations

According to Pat Forde of Sports Illustrated, the South Carolina men’s basketball program has received a Notice of Allegation from the NCAA in the form of a Level I violation.

The allegation is in connection to the recent string of violations that have affected several high-profile men’s basketball programs across the country. According to a records request by SI, they discovered that former South Carolina assistant coach Lamont Evans allegedly accepted at least $5,865 worth of bribes from the now infamous agent Christain Dawkins.

The money was reportedly exchanged in order for Dawkins to arrange meetings with former South Carolina guard P.J. Dozier back in 2015-16 in order to land him with ASM Sports, which was then operated by Andy Miller.

Evans was sentenced to three months in prison back in June for his role in accepting bribes as an assistant coach at South Carolina and Oklahoma State. He was arrested in September of 2017 while coaching at OSU and fired shortly after. Dozier was a member of South Carolina’s Final Four team back in 2017 as is currently a member of the Denver Nuggets.

According to Forde, the records request did not indicate anything that proved an exchange of money. So, for now, South Carolina is not subject to vacating any previous wins.

    I wouldn’t worry about it. UL, Kansas and Arizona are still walking around not a care in the world, LSU too! If they come after you without dealing with them 1st, file suit about them having selective enforcement and bring up UNCheat’s scandal. They neutered themselves with that fiasco. Good Luck SC!

    I hope the NCAA is still not mad at UNC, Kansas or Arizona because if they are, South Carolina is in deep trouble.

    It will be hard to punish them considering they turned the other cheek to UNC, Kansas and LSU. Everyone knows the NCAA is a joke.

    Watch, they’re gonna nail NC State and USC Jr. to the wall and let Kansas, UL, Arizona, and the others skate.

    By rights, UL should get the death penalty for cheating while on probation for cheating. But also by rights, the NCAA should look into the dramatically improved living situations of Duke player parents the last few years (decades) but that won’t happen, either.

    The assistant coach took a bribe to steer a current player to an agent? That’s a NCAA violation? What am I missing? I guess it’s illegal but what NCAA bylaw does it break? How did the team or player gain an advantage? It’s criminal but that should be dealt with by the legal system.

    South Carolina will get beheaded and impaled on a spike so the NCAA can say they punished a Carolina school. Wrong Carolina but given the level of stupidity in the NCAA hierarchy they probably don’t know the difference.

    So is it safe to say that the chickens have come home to roost?

      Or perhaps I can say, “The NCAA has come to snuff the rooster.”

    So SC gets charged for an assistant taking less than $6K to steer a current player to an agent.
    Arizona. Miller is live on tape involving the buying of players for many thousands of dollars in the FBI sting.
    LSU.Will Wade is on tape involving thousands of dollars in a Big Assed
    Offer, as taped by the FBI, and sitting tied for first at the top of the SEC, and still ineligible players recruited illegally as shown by the FBI tapes
    Louisville— currently ranked in top 6
    after being caught in the FBI sting for buying a top player while on probation.
    Kansas. Currently ranking in the top 4.Self is caught on tape by the FBI sting for buying players, that obviously extends back many years.
    The big cover up, ie delays and denials on top of denials, as learned from UNCheats is currently operational at Gayhawks U.
    Obviously USC and NC State are in for a plethora of sanctions, while the Cash Cows go merrily along with business as usual.
    I mean hell, it worked for Old Roy, just took a lot of stonewalling and denials.
    NCAA is so corrupt !
