The Associated Press reports: University of Washington basketball player Venoy Overton has been given a continuance on a charge of furnishing alcohol to a minor.
The action Thursday in Seattle Municipal Court means the charge will be dismissed if he avoids another criminal charge for a year and completes 24 hours of community service.
The 22-year-old was charged March 8, accused of giving alcohol on Jan. 8 to two 16-year-old girls he met online.
Coach Lorenzo Romar suspended Overton for the Pac-10 Conference tournament, but allowed him to return for the NCAA tournament. The senior guard's college basketball career ended with the Huskies' loss to North Carolina.

If Overton violates the terms of the continuance he could be sentenced to up to a year in jail on the alcohol charge.
