HONOLULU (AP) - The NCAA says it’s taking point-shaving allegations involving University of Hawaii football players seriously and has been in contact with the school since early this month.

The association says in a statement Wednesday it’s “extremely concerned” about the allegations. The NCAA says such a crime threatens the well-being of student-athletes and the integrity of intercollegiate sports.

The university says the admissions office received an anonymous letter Nov. 3 accusing unnamed players of intentionally playing poorly to affect the final score as part of a gambling scheme.

Honolulu police and the NCAA were notified. However, police say they don’t have enough information to launch an investigation.

The Warriors won 10 games in 2010 but have five wins and six losses this year with two games left in the regular season.
