FBI investigating UTEP basketball players


EL PASO, Texas (AP) - UTEP says it has kicked three players off the men's basketball team after they bet on at least one sporting event.

The university's executive vice president, Richard Adauto, said Tuesday that officials in December received information that players may have been betting on games. The school contacted the FBI.

Adauto says three players have since been found to have taken part in gambling - Justin Crosgile, McKenzie Moore and Jalen Ragland.

Adauto says UTEP has no information to suggest the three were involved in point-shaving.

Moore and Ragland were suspended last month. UTEP is 10-5 this season.
