Cheating case entangles athletes at Harvard

Basketball star leaving, aims for eligibility later

Harvard University basketball star Kyle Casey is voluntarily withdrawing from school for the year and will miss the entire season because he is one of about 125 students suspected of cheating on a take-home final exam, according to a person with direct knowledge of Casey’s decision.

Casey, a senior cocaptain and the team’s leading scorer, is not the only prominent athlete to be touched by the cheating scandal. Fellow cocaptain Brandyn Curry is also expected to leave, according to SI.com.
