A member of the 1988 Kansas University men's championship basketball team was sentenced Tuesday to three to 10 years in prison on a conviction for selling marijuana.

Keith O. Harris, 24, Kansas City, Mo., was sentenced Tuesday by Douglas County District Judge Michael Malone.

Harris on July 14 pleaded guilty to a felony count of selling marijuana. The charge was filed along with a felony count of selling cocaine after Harris, a reserve on the '88 championship team, allegedly sold a small amount of the drugs in May to an undercover informant working for local drug enforcement authorities.

The cocaine charge was dropped as part of a plea agreement, Douglas County Assistant Dist. Atty. Rick Trapp said.

Harris could be eligible for parole in about 18 months, Trapp said.
