CHICAGO (AP) - On the eve of college basketball's showcase event, the sport was rocked by another point-shaving scandal Thursday, this time at Northwestern - a school known more for brains than betting lines. Federal indictments charged former Wildcat starters Kenneth Dion Lee and Dewey Williams and two others with fixing the outcome of three basketball games during the 1994-95 season. A former Wildcat football player was accused in a separate indictment of running a bookmaking operation on the Northwestern campus.
