Yahoo: FBI Docs Mention Duke, UNC, NC State

But for Duke and UNC, it’s pretty minor

Duke v St John's
NEW YORK, NY - FEBRUARY 03: Wendell Carter, Jr. #34 of the Duke Blue Devils reaches for the ball against Amar Alibegovic #10 of the St. John’s Red Storm at Madison Square Garden on February 3, 2018 in New York City.

The FBI files about college basketball have leaked and all three Triangle ACC schools are mentioned but in vastly different circumstances.

For Duke, an agent paid for a meal for Wendell Carter’s mother ($106.00). For UNC, it was Brice Johnson ($100.00).

But for NC State it was Dennis Smith and a loan of $43,500 and that could be problematic. Good news though - State sucked horribly while Smith was there so even if the NCAA voided all the games Smith played in it wouldn’t be much worse than it actually was.

As far as we can tell everything mentioned is from agent to player or player’s family.

Wendell Carter’s and Brice Johnson’s information came from a story which was on the mobile version but not yet on the full web version. We are certainly not intimately familiar with NCAA rules but they seem to us like minor violations and the sort where the NCAA typically asks for the money to be repaid to a charity.
