San Diego basketball star gets 6 months in prison

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Former University of San Diego basketball star Brandon Johnson was sentenced to six months in prison Friday for his role in a game-fixing scheme.
San Diego's all-time scoring and assists leader admitted unsuccessfully soliciting an unidentified player during the 2010-11 season, when he was no longer at the school. He insisted he never manipulated a game in which he played, though prosecutors alleged he sought to influence the outcome of games during his senior year.
U.S. District Judge Anthony Battaglia told Johnson, 26, that his record-setting career was tarnished, according to the U-T San Diego newspaper (Prison for former USD player Page 2 of 2 | UTSanDiego.com).
''You disparaged the integrity of a university and disparaged the integrity of basketball,'' Battaglia said.
