HONOLULU – Honolulu police say they don’t have enough information to investigate allegations that University of Hawaii football players are involved in a point-shaving scheme.
The Honolulu Police Department said in a statement Tuesday that they became aware of the allegation in early November but “at this time there is not enough information to open a criminal investigation.”
Earlier Tuesday, the university released a statement saying the admissions office received an anonymous letter Nov. 3 accusing unnamed players of intentionally playing poorly to affect the final score as part of a gambling scheme. The university says officials immediately alerted police and the NCAA.
After winning 10 games in 2010, the Warriors are 5-6 this year. They’re 3-7-1 against the point spread and have failed to beat the spread in nearly two months.
