McPherson began a tuition guarantee

The plan will continue through MSU's

The Detroit News claimed Mott bas-
ketball coach Steve Schmidt purposeful-
ly withheld the information from
University officials in an effort to save
Harvey's basketball career.
The newspaper also stated that
Schmidt met with Genesee County
Prosecutor Arthur Busch to win some
leniency for Harvey.
However, Schmidt, in a conversation
with The Michigan Daily, said that many
of his comments had been misconstrued
or taken out of context, and refused to

that Martin was often seated near
recruits at games.
An unsigned note on the ticket records
for a game in 1994 states the then-recruit
Willie Mitchell was to be seatedbetween
Martin and Detroit Mayor Dennis
Archer's son, which may be a violation
because at the time both Martin and
Archer were considered part of the
University's athletic program.
As a result of the allegations, the
University has hired a law firm that spe-
cializes in NCAA infractions and com-
pliance to investigate the claims.
