      Ex-UC basketball players sentenced in robbery, including Florence man

      CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Three former University of Charleston basketball players have been sentenced for their roles in a robbery and beating.

      Media outlets report that Robbie Dreher , 22, of Greenville, S.C., and Terrell Lipkins, 22, of Canton, Ohio, received suspended sentences on Wednesday. Kanawha County Circuit Court Judge Duke Bloom ordered them to complete a program for youth offenders.

      Dreher was convicted of unlawful wounding and Lipkins was convicted of first-degree robbery and credit card fraud.

      On Tuesday, Bloom sentenced Quincy Luther Washington , 22, of Florence to two to 10 years in prison. Washington was convicted of malicious wounding.

      The charges stemmed from the robbery and beating of two men in downtown Charleston in April.
