The charges involve high school prospects being
offered a monthly allowance of $300 beginning when the
prospects signed a letter of intent to attend Kentucky and
ending upon leaving the university. Other enticements
included a car at the time of signing, a new car after
enrolling at Kentucky, and financial assistance to the
prospect's family.
An additional charge alleges "a basketball staff
member at Kentucky made improper recruiting contact"
with the prospect, reportedly Higgins, who was offered
the illegal inducements.
The illegality reportedly involves an assistant coach
shooting baskets at a high school practice with the
recruit. Higgins' high school coach denied Higgins had
ever shot baskets with an "assistant coach," according to
published reports.
Kentucky has declined to release the names of the
players involved in the scandal on advice of its legal
counsel.
"Sean knew that things weren't right, and he never

accepted anything. His dad encouraged him not to do
anything that was not right," Frieder said.
"The allegations involving Higgins, we've read about
in the newspapers. The fact that (the NCAA) made that
allegation is no surprise to us," said attorney Joe Bill
Campbell who is representing Kentucky assistant basket-
ball coach Dwayne Casey. Casey has been charged with
allegedly sending money to Chris Mills, who now plays
for Kentucky. Casey has denied all of the allegations.
Higgins was one of the most highly recruited high
school players in the country two years ago. In an
unusual and extremely controversial situation, the 6-9
guard/forward from Los Angeles originally signed to
play for UCLA. The NCAA released him from his
binding letter of intent after Higgins claimed he signed
the letter under duress.
Higgins was academically ineligible for the Big Ten
season last year after he failed to meet Michigan
eligibility standards. During the spring, he pleaded "no
contest" to an assault charge and was forced to perform
community service.

Oakland nips L.A.
on McGwire homer

FROM STAFF REPORTS
Oakland Athletics first baseman
Mark McGwire with one out in the
ninth inning homered off Los
Angeles Dodger pitcher Jay Howell
to give the Athletics a 2-1 victory
over the Dodgers, and narrow the
Dodgers' series lead to two games to
one.
The Athletics took a 1-0 lead in
the third inning when second
baseman Glen Hubbard led off with a
long single to the left field wall.
Dodger left fielder Mickey Hatcher
played the ball perfectly off the wall
to hold Hubbard at first base.

It became moot however as
Hubbard stole second base and
advanced to third when Los Angeles
catcher Mike Scioscia threw the ball
into center field. Hubbard scored
when catcher Ron Hassey followed
with a base hit into left.
The Dodgers tied the score in the
sixth when first baseman Franklin
Stubbs doubled home rookie Jeff
Hamilton. Hamilton was sacrificed to
second by shortstop Alfredo Griffin,
who the replays showed was out of
the baseline.
Dodger starter John Tudor departed
with one out in the second inning.
