SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — University of Utah basketball players Jake Connor, Tyler Rawson and Beau Rydalch don’t smoke and Rydalch knew something was wrong when they returned to their house after a game and he saw cigarette butts on the floor and the back door open.
The players say their Salt Lake City-area home was burglarized Thursday night during the Utes’ Pac-12 Conference game against UCLA.

The players believe they were targeted because the thieves knew they would all be on campus for a game.
The stolen vehicle is a silver 2015 Jeep Cherokee with a University of Utah logo on the back with a license plate number of F100BJ.
