SAN FERNANDO, CALIF. (AP) - A former player at NCAA tournament-bound Cal State Northridge and the coach’s son have been ordered to stand trial on theft and burglary charges.

Superior Court Judge Sanjay Kumar ruled Tuesday there was sufficient evidence to try 23-year-old Deon Tresvant and 22-year-old Jeffrey Robert Braswell along with a third man.

Arraignment is April 1.

Braswell is the son of Cal State Northridge head basketball coach Bobby Braswell, whose team plays Memphis on Thursday in the tournament.

Tresvant was a senior guard on the team but hasn’t played since the arrests were made in January.

Prosecutors say Jeffrey Braswell used a fellow employee’s password to log into a cash register at a Best Buy store, then rang up merchandise that wasn’t paid for.
