HBO’s ‘The Scheme’ to Air Tonight [VIDEO]
The FBI wiretap that allegedly incriminated LSU basketball coach Will Wade is expected to air during HBO's documentary, The Scheme, tonight at 8 pm CST. It will be available On Demand on Wednesday, April 1, 2020.
If you remember, LSU and Coach Wade missed the NCAA tournament last year due to the allegations. According to The Advocate, the NCAA will be watching tonight and they also report that LSU hasn't made it's, 'ultimate plans known with regard to Wade, who signed a 6-year, $15 million contract with LSU in 2017 that runs through June 30, 2023. The contract did not include a buyout. The school would owe Wade the entire amount were he to be fired.'
Here is the synopsis of the documentary from the HBO website:
On September 26, 2017, an extensive two-year undercover FBI investigation into a basketball corruption scandal led to the arrest of executives at Adidas and assistant coaches at major college programs.
At the center of it all was Christian Dawkins, an unassuming and unknown 25-year-old who was allegedly part of a criminal enterprise that infiltrated college basketball teams and funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars to steer recruits to prominent athletic programs.
For the first time ever, Dawkins explains how a kid from Saginaw, Michigan wound up in a hotel suite surrounded by FBI agents with a warrant for his arrest.
Will the NCAA hear damning evidence tonight? We'll find out soon enough.
