    A corruption scandal is hanging over college basketball in the US.

    At least eight people, including coaches and sportswear executives, have been charged as part of a major bribery investigation.

    The investigation is looking into kickbacks allegedly paid by shoe companies to coaches and universities, which are funnelled towards locking in top recruits.
