Synopsis

Using extensive background research as well as interviews with the principal characters, Fixed provides the first in-depth reconstruction of the point-shaving scandal involving the 1978-1979 Boston College basketball team, from the genesis of the plot in the summer of 1978, to the uncovering of the scheme during an unrelated investigation in 1980, to the trial that captivated the sports world in the fall of 1981. It is a multi-layered story of greed and betrayal combining sports, gambling, and the Mafia.
