Former University of San Diego star Brandon Johnson was charged with running a sports betting business and attempting to fix the outcome of games.  The school’s all-time scoring leader was charged along with another player, Brandon Dowdy,and assistant coach, Thaddeus Brown.  Seven others were charged in connection with the case.  Authorities would not elaborate on how the scheme worked.  The indictment was unsealed on Monday. 

"These are very serious allegations and the university is fully cooperating with the investigation," USD President Mary Lyons said.


The indictment alleges that Johnson, 24, took a bribe to influence a USD game in February 2010 and solicited someone else this January to affect the outcome of USD basketball games while playing for the Dakota Wizards, a development team for the NBA's Memphis Grizzlies. Johnson, a guard for the Toreros from 2005 to 2010, finished with 1,790 points and 525 assists.

The indictment, handed up Friday by a federal grand jury in San Diego and unsealed Monday, alleges that Brown, 32, of El Cajon, and Dowdy, 22, of San Diego, solicited someone to affect the outcome of a game at the University of California, Riverside in February.

Johnson played for San Diego when his team stunned the recent NCAA Champion UConn Huskies during the first round of the 2008 NCAA Tournament.
