LAS VEGAS -- A suspended UNLV basketball player will remain free without bail pending a Nov. 12 preliminary hearing on charges that he stole expensive Nike sneakers, $500 cash and almost $900 worth of video games from a friend's apartment.

Nineteen-year-old Savon Goodman stood with his attorney during a brief initial appearance Friday on misdemeanor conspiracy and felony burglary and grand larceny charges that could get him up to 15 years in a Nevada prison.

He and his lawyer, William Terry, later declined to comment.

Police say a resident identified Goodman as one of three people who made off with items during an overnight burglary May 18 at an apartment near campus. Goodman is a sophomore from Philadelphia.

Coach Dave Rice has announced Goodman will sit out the upcoming season.
