It’s unlikely that anything will ever overtake this. In 2003, Carlton Dotson murdered his Baylor teammate Patrick Dennehy. This was a tragedy but this story has a dark twist. Head coach Dave Bliss tried to cover up the killing. He also told investigators that Dennehy was a drug dealer.
In reality, Bliss paid for Dennehy’s tuition. Meanwhile, he influenced his assistants to back up his story. But the truth emerged when one of his staff recorded a conversation. This was one of the biggest scandals in sports history, never mind basketball (via USA Today).
