TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -A former University of Toledo basketball player has been charged with fixing games.
A federal indictment filed in federal court in Detroit says Sammy Villegas shaved points in games during the 2004-05 and 2005-06 seasons.
Villegas is charged with conspiracy to influence sports contests by bribery.
The indictment says Villegas intentionally missed two free throws in a game against Wright State in 2006.
Federal prosecutors say the player received money and other gifts in exchange for fixing games.
