SAN DIEGO (AP) - A former University of San Diego assistant basketball coach could face jail time for his role in a game-fixing scheme.

U-T San Diego says Thaddeus "TJ" Brown could face up to 2 ½ years in federal prison at his scheduled sentencing Thursday, although he's requested probation.

Brown was one of 10 people, including former team members, who were charged two years ago with arranging to fix games. Brown and most of the others pleaded guilty to conspiracy or other charges. They include the university's all-time leading scorer, Brandon Johnson, who got six months in prison.

Prosecutors contend that several games were fixed in the 2009-2010 season so bettors could reap thousands of dollars, and unsuccessful attempts were made to fix games in 2011.
