Two Gator basketball players arrested on felony burglary charges

GAINESVILLE — Florida basketball players Cody Larson and Erik Murphy each face felony burglary charges stemming from their arrest early Sunday morning in St. Augustine. They have been released on bail.

Joshua Adel, who identified himself as a team manager, was charged with principal to burglary. He reportedly told police he was a lookout.

According to the police report, Larson and Murphy went into Scarlett O'Hara's Bar and Restaurant around 2 a.m. Sunday, claiming they had lost a wallet. Police said the men tried to get close to an employee who was counting money from the night.

Bouncers then told Larson and Murphy to leave. Moments later, according to the report, they saw the men breaking into a co-worker's car across the street. Murphy, a sophomore, was a reserve forward this past season. Larson was redshirted.

    The 10 strikeouts look flashy, but RHP Chris Archer was not his sharpest Thursday. He allowed three runs on seven hits, including three straight in the two-run second and a Gary Sanchez homer in the third, and lasted only six innings, throwing 102 pitches.

    NEW YORK — The front office did its part Thursday, making two trades to bolster the roster in a push for the playoffs. But the Rays didn't follow up in a frustrating 6-5 11-inning loss to the Yankees.

    Rays reliever Andrew Kittredge stands on the mound and can only watch as the Yankees’ Brett Gardner starts to circle the bases after his walkoff home run leading off the 11th inning.
  3. Believe it! Rays are buyers, trade for reliever Dan Jennings and 1B/DH Lucas Duda

    NEW YORK — Dan Jennings' ability to render lefty hitters useless with a sinker that gets beaten into the ground and Lucas Duda's power to blast baseballs off and over outfield walls should make the Rays better.
