GREENBELT, Md. (AP) - A federal judge sentenced former University of Maryland basketball star Lonny Baxter to 60 days in prison on Friday for illegally shipping firearms.
The decision could affect his upcoming season with a Spanish league team.
U.S. District Judge Peter Messitte based the sentence on Baxter's history with firearms and his actions in the case.
``You are in a sense on injured reserve,'' Messitte told Baxter. ``You have in effect injured yourself.''
Baxter, a member of Maryland's 2002 NCAA championship team, apologized to Messitte before the sentencing, saying he had an ``obsession'' with guns.
