Two Drexel Hoops Players Arrested For Armed Robbery

Philadelphia police say two Drexel University basketball players and a third man are facing charges after an armed robbery at another Drexel student's apartment.

Philadelphia Police Lieutenant John Walker says 21-year-old star point guard Jamie Harris and 21-year-old Kevin Phillip turned themselves in Monday on robbery and weapons charges- among other counts.

Police say the robbery happened at a woman's apartment around 10:30PM Wednesday.

Walker says the third man arrested, 21-year-old Devon Bond, was arrested Thursday. Walker says the men went in looking for money but couldn't and didn't find any. They allegedly left with two cell phones.

For those of you who don't know your Dragons starting fives, Harris is Drexel's starting point guard and Phillip is a backup forward.
