OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma State assistant basketball coach Lamont Evans told a judge during an initial court appearance that he understands the allegations that he took bribes to influence star athletes.

He surrendered to federal marshals early Wednesday on corruption charges following an investigation into the criminal influence of money on coaches and players in the NCAA.
