This week on the Pennalty Box, instead of mourning the end of basketball season, Sam is joined by news editor Gio Paz and sports editor Danny Chiarodit to discuss the Jerome Allen bribery scandal. We discuss the background of the story and the history of Allen and Ira Bowman in Penn basketball, reactions to the story around campus, and the potential penalties and reforms that could come from the scandal. For a look behind the scenes and some analysis of the biggest story at Penn, check out the Pennalty Box!

Note: In this episode, we said that Esformes paid Allen $400,000 in bribes. The correct figure is about $300,000 ($400,000 was the amount donated to Singer's charity). Read more on our website.
