OJ Mayo’s Agent Denies Allegations of Wrongdoing

The head of the sports agency representing O.J. Mayo denied any illegal activity involving the Southern California star on Monday, a day after ESPN reported Bill Duffy Associates gave cash to an event promoter who provided gifts.

"We are in contact with the NCAA and the Pac-10 and are working with both in a cooperative investigation to review these new allegations," USC said in a statement issued later in the day.

Mayo, who sat courtside for Game 4 of the Boston-Cleveland second-round playoff series Monday night, said he was hoping to get more information about the situation when he returned to school. [Sports Illustrated]
