LAS VEGAS – Runnin’ Rebel sophomore Savon Goodman has quit the team.

The nineteen-year-old Goodman issued a statement through the team saying he felt a lot of pressure the last few months, and that it was best to leave the program.

Goodman who had been suspended for the 2013-2014 season due to burglary charges, quit the team right before his preliminary hearing on those criminal charges that he stole expensive Nike sneakers, $500 cash and almost $900 worth of video games from a friend’s apartment.

A judge is due to decide Nov. 12 if Goodman should stand trial on misdemeanor conspiracy and felony burglary and grand larceny charges in a May 18 incident at an off-campus apartment.
