SAN DIEGO (AP) - Former University of San Diego basketball star Brandon Johnson has been sentenced to six months in prison for his role in a game-fixing scheme.
U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/12hi3FI ) reports that federal prosecutors wanted a judge to sentence the school's all-time leading scorer to a year in prison on Friday. Johnson's attorney wanted probation and no time in custody.
The 26-year-old insists he never manipulated a game in which he played, though prosecutors allege he profited on several games his senior year. He is the highest profile of the 10 defendants indicted in 2011.
U.S. District Judge Anthony Battaglia says Johnson disparaged the integrity of the university and basketball. Johnson reports to prison on May 31.
