Prosecutors detail ex-UConn star's Ponzi scheme

Former UConn player's last shot from jail?

He sank one of the most famous buzzer-beating shots in the University of Connecticut's history, and took his Huskies to victory in the NCAA tournament regional semifinals 25 years ago.

That win took him straight to the NBA. But when his pro career ended, prosecutors say Tate George turned to conning friends and other athletes out of millions in a real estate Ponzi scheme.

George is now being held in jail while he waits to be sentenced. But that doesn't mean he's just sitting around idle.
