Cheating case entangles athletes at Harvard
Basketball star leaving, aims for eligibility later
Harvard University basketball star Kyle Casey is withdrawing from school for the year and will miss the entire season because he is one of some 125 students suspected of cheating on a take-home final exam. His co-captain, Brandyn Curry, may also withdraw. The scandal may ultimately touch many other athletes — almost half the students under investigation play varsity sports, an implicated athlete told the Globe. Some may withdraw voluntarily to ensure they can preserve four years of NCAA eligibility.
