ESPN's critically acclaimed "30 for 30" series premieres this Tuesday with Playing for the Mob. The story details the Boston College point shaving scandal of 1978-1979, its players, characters, and how the mob bought college basketball.
In 1978, Henry Hill, a noted gangster from the Lucchese crime family in New York City, teamed up with Rocco and Tony Perla from Pittsburgh to buy Boston College basketball. Hill, the protagonist from the movie Goodfellas who passed away last year, the Perlas, and BC basketball player Rick Kuhn spearheaded an effort for the Eagles to fix games by shaving points.
With teammates involved, Kuhn orchestrated point shaving games across nine games between December and February, 1978-1979. What started as a simple scheme became a story of high stake gambling, the Mafia, and Boston College. The scheme remained a secret until Hill turned informant in 1980.
We will spearhead a discussion of the story, its impact on college sports, and the prospect of match fixing as it continues today. We'll be joined by a panel of guests throughout the night, and we'll help get you ready for Boston College basketball season, the first under recently appointed head coach Jim Christian.
This is going to be one helluva show, and like so many before it, one you won't want to miss! So tune in and talk BC basketball and Goodfellas as we gear up for Tuesday's premiere of Playing for the Mob!
