Description:
The CCNY Point Shaving Scandal of 1950-1951 was a college basketball point shaving gambling scandal that involved seven schools in all, with four in Greater New York and three in the Midwest. However, most of the key players in the scandal were student-athletes at City College of New York.

Background

The scandal involved the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and National Invitation Tournament (NIT) champion City College of New York (CCNY). CCNY had won the 1950 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament and the 1950 National Invitation Tournament the previous spring over Bradley University. The scandal involved the Beavers and at least six other schools, including four in the New York City area; CCNY, along with Manhattan College, New York University and Long Island University. It spread out of New York City to Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois, the University of Kentucky and the University of Toledo. The scandal would spread to 33 players and involve the world of organized crime. CCNY was eventually banned from playing at Madison Square Garden, although the coach, Nat Holman, would be cleared of any wrongdoing.Nat Holman: The Man, His Legacy and CCNY. - The City College Library - City College of New YorkGoldstein, Joe. - ESPN - November 19, 2003
