DURHAM, NC (AP) -- Former Duke University basketball stars Christian Laettner and Brian Davis are scheduled to be in court facing possible jail time.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports the teammates on Duke's 1991 and 1992 NCAA championship teams been ordered to a Washington, DC, courtroom Friday to tell a judge why they shouldn't be held in contempt of court for failing to pay a real estate debt.

Laettner and Davis didn't return calls seeking comment this week.

The hearing involves an earlier ruling that their company Blue Devil Ventures must pay more than $670,000 to California investors who loaned money to develop property in Baltimore. Attorneys for the investors say Laettner and Davis haven't paid the judgment and ignored requests to show whether they have assets available to pay.
