MEMPHIS, TN ( allegations of a pay to play scandal at the University of Memphis.

Local 24 Sports has learned that a relative of former Memphis tigers basketball player Pierre Niles has been in contact with the NCAA and reported what would be considered a major rules infraction. 

The relative told the NCAA that Henderson-Niles played for the U of M under a pay to play arrangement with then coach John Calipari.

We called the University of Memphis and have been informed that the NCAA has not been in contact with the school. 

Henderson-Niles played with the U of M from 2006 to 2010. His last season was under current coach Josh Pastner who is not mentioned in the allegations.

Local 24 Sports spoke with Pastner who said he has no knowledge of such arrangement and does not believe the allegations to be true. Efforts to reach Henderon-Niles for comment about the allegations were unsuccessful.
