Former Auburn Basketball Player Indicted For Trying To Fix Game Against Arkansas

Point-shaving chargesAn indictment unsealed on Tuesday claims former Auburn point guard Varez Ward offered to pay teammates to participate in a point-shaving scheme.

Ward was arrested on Monday for trying to fix the point spread in a game against Arkansas in 2012.  Auburn lost the game 56-53 and was a 9 1/2 point underdog on the road against the Razorbacks.  Ward barely played after apparently injuring his leg 19 seconds after entering the contest.  Ward was suspended later that season after a player reportedly raised concerns with coaches. He never returned to play in another game for Auburn.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday morning.  He’s charged with two bribe-related counts and faces up to five years in prison on each of the two counts. No co-conspirators are listed in the indictment.  Here’s the account from January of 2012 for the game in question.
