CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Three University of Charleston, W.Va., basketball players have been dismissed from the Division II team after authorities charged the men in a downtown robbery.

Police filed a criminal complaint alleging two people were struck and robbed of cash and a credit card early Sunday. Police say the card was used to make purchases at a fast-food restaurant and a convenience store.

Kanawha County Magistrate Court records show 20-year-old Terrell Lipkins, of Canton, Ohio; 22-year-old Robbie Dreher, of Greenville, S.C., and Quincy Washington, 22, of Florence, S.C., each were charged with first-degree robbery. Lipkins, the team's leading scorer, also was charged with four counts of credit card fraud.

They were held on bond Wednesday. Jail records didn't indicate whether they had attorneys.
