Former Auburn basketball player Kyievarez “Varez” Ward has been charged with conspiring with gamblers to throw games during the 2011-12 college basketball season. Ward was suspended midway through the 2012 season as the FBI investigated him for point-shaving.

Ward faces two bribery-related counts for “commerce to influence, in any way, by bribery a sporting contest, with knowledge that the purpose of such scheme was to influence by bribery.” The indictment does not name any co-conspirators.

The two games in question are a January 25, 2012 loss to Arkansas and a 68-50 loss to Alabama on February 7, 2012.
