Tulane Basketball’s Shame
The Green Wave had one of the most notorious scandals in college sports history. It was so bad that the university president shut down their basketball program for almost half a decade. In 1985, it emerged that several players were involved in a points-shaving scheme that brought the sport to its knees.
Tulane resumed playing in 1989 but this was one of the school’s darkest moments. One game against Southern Mississippi gave the offending players away because several athletes played below their standards. Meanwhile, the basketball head coach also admitted to paying his players and this crossed the line (via Crescent City Sports).
