UNLV Sophomore Forward to Sit Out Upcoming Season

By  | 

LAS VEGAS (AP) - UNLV coach Dave Rice says sophomore forward Savon Goodman will sit out the upcoming season so he "can focus on getting his priorities in order."

Court documents show a warrant was issued Aug. 15 for Goodman's arrest on felony charges of burglary and grand larceny and a gross misdemeanor charge of conspiracy to commit burglary stemming from a May 18 incident.

Rice declined to discuss specifics of the case, but says the 19-year-old Goodman has not been kicked off the Runnin' Rebels and is expected to start classes Monday.

Goodman is scheduled to appear Friday in Las Vegas Justice Court.

The Philadelphia native averaged 9.1 minutes in 27 games last season, recording 3.6 points and 2.4 rebounds per game. He was expected to take on an expanded role this season.
