Drexel hoops players surrender

Drexel University basketball players Jamie Harris and Kevin Phillip surrendered separately to police today to face charges that they allegedly robbed a fellow student at gunpoint in her apartment Wednesday.

Harris, the Dragons' starting point guard, called police to surrender this morning and was picked up at his University Crossings apartment. Phillip, a backup forward, was later met by police at his attorney's office at 13th and Chestnut streets, Southwest Detectives Lt. John Walker said.

Harris' attorney, Robert Lynch, said his client was on a full scholarship to Drexel and that he looked forward to proving his innocent in court. Lynch called the "sources" of the investigation "corrupt," but he declined to elaborate.

Ace DN reporter David Gambacorta broke the story in today's Daily News, which you can read here.
