Ex Michigan star Robinson gets 6 1/2 years

Talk about falling from grace.

It was 21 years ago when Rumeal Robinson hit two big free throws with three seconds to lift the Michigan Wolverines to a victory over Seton Hall in the NCAA national championship game.

Now he'll be hitting free throws in a prison courtyard.

Robinson was sentenced to 6 1/2 years after being found guilty on 11 charges, including wire fraud and bank bribery. Robinson was found guilty guilty by a jury in September.

Robinson scammed over $700,000 from a bank in Ankeny, Iowa. 

Robinson played six seasons in the NBA for the Hawks, Nets, Hornets, Lakers, Trailblazers and Suns.
