 SAN DIEGO (AP) - Authorities say one of the leaders of a gambling ring that fixed a University of San Diego basketball game has been sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison.
U-T San Diego reports (http://bit.ly/THkH2i ) that 33-year-old Steve Goria received the sentence, the longest yet in the 10-defendant case, in federal court Friday.
In August he pleaded guilty to sports bribery, admitting he made $120,000 after betting on a February 2010 game that San Diego player Brandon Johnson was paid to influence.
The Toreros, favored by odds makers to beat Loyola Marymount by 3 1/2 points, lost 72-69 after squandering a late lead.
Johnson, one of four people awaiting a December trial including another former player and a former assistant coach, has pleaded not guilty.
Six of the 10 defendants have reached plea agreements.
