GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida basketball coach Billy Donovan
has suspended forwards Erik Murphy and Cody Larson after they were arrested and charged with breaking into a car.

Donovan says he is "very disappointed with the news" and the
players have been suspended from "basketball-related activities."
Donovan says he will not comment further until he gets more
information and meets with the players.

Police say witnesses spotted Murphy and Larson breaking into a
car outside a restaurant/bar. The car owner reported nothing
missing.

Murphy and Larson were charged with one felony count of
third-degree burglary. They were booked at the St. Johns County
Jail about 4 a.m. Sunday and later released on $5,000 bond.
