Harvard’s academic dishonesty scandal that could involve as many as 125 undergraduates could claim each of the Crimson’s current basketball co-captains before Tuesday’s fall registration deadline passes.

Sports Illustrated confirmed the team’s leading returning scorer and rebounder, senior Kyle Casey would withdraw from school. Senior guard Brandyn Curry, the other team captain who was also implicated in the cheating scandal, was on the fence as to whether he would be back with the team or leave school.

Harvard College announced in a letter released Aug. 30 that the administrative board had been investigating allegations of “acts of academic dishonesty ranging from inappropriate collaboration to outright plagiarism on a take-home final exam” in a Government 1310 course in spring 2012 with an case roll of over 275 students.

Academic dishonesty charges at Harvard call for a one-year suspension from school. According to the school newspaper, the football team will also be affected by the charges.

Harvard’s men’s basketball team won the Ivy League title for the first time ever in 2011-12 to reach the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1946. Coach Tommy Amaker has been at Harvard since 2007 and won at least 21 games in three straight seasons. Harvard tied for the Ivy League championship in 2010-11.
