Jury selection begins in second trial over NCAA recruitment

By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Jury selection has begun in the trial of an aspiring agent and a former amateur coach charged with bribing big-school coaches to boost their business relationship with amateur basketball players.

The trial of business manager Christian Dawkins and ex-amateur league director Merl Code began Monday in Manhattan federal court.

Testimony in a trial projected to last two weeks will surround bribes paid to an assistant coach at the University of South Carolina and later Oklahoma State University, an assistant coach at the University of Arizona and an assistant coach at the University of Southern California.

Those now ex-coaches have pleaded guilty to charges and await sentencing.

Judge Edgardo Ramos told prospective jurors that the scandal also affected Creighton University and Texas Christian University.

Code and Dawkins have pleaded not guilty.
