RENO, Nev. (AP) -Nevada starting guard Brandon Fields has pleaded not guilty to a shoplifting charge stemming from an incident earlier this month at a Sparks sporting goods store.
In the same case involving a Scheels store, freshman point guard London Giles pleaded guilty Wednesday to petty larceny, and was fined $350 plus court costs of $107, while freshman forward Ahyaro Phillips is scheduled for arraignment Monday.
All three players have been suspended indefinitely by coach Mark Fox.
Fields, a 6-foot-4 junior from Arlington, Texas, is scheduled to go to trial Nov. 3 in Sparks Municipal Court.
Fields started all but one of Nevada's games last season, was the team's third-leading scorer with a 12.4-point average and was selected to the Western Athletic Conference's all-academic team.
Giles, a 6-3 guard from Dallas, is remorseful and taking responsibility for his mistake, said his lawyer, Thomas Viloria.
``It certainly is an isolated event, and I don't believe this is going to be the measuring stick of this man's character,'' he said.
inal complaint does not specify what the three players are accused of taking, but declined to comment further.
Phillips, a 6-8 forward, is a New Orleans native who relocated to Virginia after Hurricane Katrina.
