Ex-Razorbacks guard Beck recovering from gunshot

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Former Arkansas basketball star Corey Beck
was listed in fair condition at a hospital Wednesday, recovering
from wounds suffered during an attempted robbery.

Beck, a member of the Razorbacks' 1994 national championship
team, and a friend were shot by two would-be robbers early Sunday.

Beck, 36, and Timothy Wilkins, 35, were in a car when two men
with masks and a shotgun came up, police said.

Beck was shot in the hand and face but managed to drive his car
to a fire station. He was taken to The Regional Medical Center in
critical condition, but had been upgraded by Wednesday.

Wilkins was treated and released for wounds at Methodist
University Hospital.

The would-be robbers fled.
