If you’re missing the NCAA tournament, “The Scheme” will make you less wistful — or at least, provide a reminder of big-money college basketball’s grimy underbelly, exploring a corruption scandal that makes the NCAA look bad, and actually makes the FBI look worse.
Sports fans should be familiar with the broad strokes of “The Scheme,” which focuses on the two-year FBI undercover investigation that exposed a plot to bribe assistant college basketball coaches to steer players to a management company run by 26-year-old Christian Dawkins.
Four coaches were arrested, involving universities that included USC, Arizona, Auburn, and Oklahoma State.
“The Scheme” is available now on HBO.
