Report: FBI probing AU's Ward for point shaving
Report: FBI investigating suspended Auburn point guard Varez Ward for point shaving
By The Associated Press

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) ' Yahoo Sports reports that federal authorities are investigating suspended Auburn point guard Varez Ward for alleged point shaving.

The report released Thursday cites anonymous sources and says the FBI began an investigation in late February involving losses to Alabama on Feb. 7 and Arkansas on Jan. 25.

Ward and guard Chris Denson were both suspended before a Feb. 25 game against Arkansas, but Denson returned for the next game. Yahoo Sports reports that Denson was questioned and cleared of wrongdoing.

An Auburn spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday.

The report says that the school contacted both the FBI and the NCAA after a player reported concerns to an assistant coach in late February.

Auburn coach Tony Barbee has not said why the players were suspended.
