Charges have been dropped against two University of Memphis basketball players charged in connection to a Labor Day weekend brawl at a Beale Street nightclub.

A judge in Memphis dropped charges Tuesday against Shawn Taggart and Jeff Robinson.  The pair had been charged with disorderly conduct and inciting a riot after a fight outside the Plush Club last September.

Taggart and Robinson attended anger management classes after the brawl.

The judge said the fact that the players had no prior criminal record weighed as a factor in the decision to drop the charges.

The Tigers play in New Orleans versus Tulane tomorrow night.
