Academic fraud alleged at UNC

In an interview with ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” that aired Friday, ex-North Carolina basketball player Rashad McCants – the second-leading scorer on Roy Williams’ first NCAA championship team in 2005 – said tutors wrote papers for him, and that Williams knew about no-show classes popular with athletes.

McCants also said Williams told him he could swap a failing grade from one class with a passing one from another to stay eligible during the 2004-05 season, according to the report.

He entered the NBA draft as a junior after that season.
