Las Vegas, NV (Sports Network) – Following an offseason felony charge for
burglary, UNLV sophomore forward Savon Goodman will not play another game for
the Runnin’ Rebels.

Goodman allegedly stole $500, a pair of shoes and 26 video games from a Las
Vegas apartment. He was charged on Aug. 15 in Las Vegas Township Justice Court
with conspiracy to commit burglary, burglary and grand larceny. The latter two
are felonies.

On Aug. 24, UNLV head coach Dave Rice announced that Goodman would be
suspended for the 2013-14 season.

Goodman, originally from Philadelphia, averaged 3.6 points and 2.4 rebounds in
just over nine minutes per game as a freshman.

“I respect Savon’s decision (to transfer) and will always be here to support
him,” said Rice. “I wish him all the best.”
