Prospective college players should watch who they deal with

Chemeketa Community College men's basketball team had to forfeit all their wins from this season due to a player making an agreement to play with Las Vegas Defenders (2012-2013 record 2-5). Although the player was never paid, and the team apparently never paid their "market reservation," that was enough to eliminate his amateur status.

I'm surprised this type of thing hasn't happened sooner.

I live in Las Vegas, and never knew there was (or is?) a team called the Defenders.

It's the ABA for heaven's sake. A team could be playing at the rec center down the street and you'd never know it existed.
