The University of Texas at El Paso’s basketball team said Tuesday it has removed three players following allegations they bet on at least one sporting event, the Huffington Post reports.

The removal comes after university officials in December received tips that the players were betting on games.

The three players are Justin Crosgile, McKenzie Moore and Jalen Ragland.

The students won’t return to classes or the team, university officials said.

“I’m crushed personally that this is happened,” Floyd said.

Justice Department Intervenes in Dispute over Sports Betting in New Jersey

Saying the 20-year federal ban on sports betting is unconstitutional, New Jersey is challenging the law in hopes of legalizing sports betting at casinos and racing tracks, NJ.com reports.

But the U.S. Department of Justice struck down the argument Friday, saying New Jersey can’t challenge the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, NJ.com reported.

The DOJ intervened on behalf of a lawsuit filed by the National Collegiate Athletics Association and professional leagues – the NBA, MLB, NHL and NFL.

“(The federal law) is a constitutional exercise of congressional authority,” the lawsuit reads, “and it should be upheld.”

New Jersey officials claim the law is unconstitutional because, for one, four states are allowed to bet on sports but the others, including New Jersey, are not.
