Harvard captain to withdraw from school amid cheating scandal, report says

Harvard basketball co-captain Kyle Casey plans to withdraw from school amid a cheating scandal that also may involve other athletes, according to several reports.

Sports Illustrated and the Harvard Crimson reported Tuesday that Casey, a senior, would withdraw in an attempt to preserve a year of eligibility once the issue is resolved.

Co-captain Brandyn Curry also has been implicated in the scandal and is weighing his options, his father told the magazine. The Boston Herald reported Curry also is expected to withdraw from classes.

The school is looking into whether at least 125 undergraduates cheated by working together on a take-home final exam in the spring.

The Crimson reported that other athletes, including football players are also among those implicated.

Harvard spokesman Tim Williamson declined to comment on Tuesday.
