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.

At least nine Miami police officers are the target of an FBI investigation into a scheme to protect an illegal sports-betting operation, the Miami Herald reports.

The officers are accused of protecting a Liberty City gambling ring that operated out of a barber shop.

The Miami Herald wrote that six of the officers have resigned or been suspended as part of the probe.

Arrests are expected by the end of the month.

According to the Miami Herald, one gambler saw cops so frequently that he believed the police department was running the shop.
