Description

The Christopher Robin Academy is an NCAA eligibility factory. Dozens of academically troubled players, including several current NBA players, have used the small school in Queens in recent years as a backdoor option to gain easy access to college scholarships.

A two-month ESPN.com investigation questions whether the NCAA should be accepting grades from Christopher Robin.
