"It's frustrating, it's disappointing, but that's life," Gophers basketball coach Tubby Smith told reporters this morning about the continuing saga of his star recruit, Royce White.
A few weeks ago, White was charged with shoplifting at the Mall of America. Now he's under investigation following the dorm room theft of a laptop computer last weekend. White says he had nothing to do with the theft, and nobody's been charged in the matter.
Smith says White remains suspended indefinitely, and he's still gathering information about White's latest run-with authorities. "He won't be playing tomorrow, he won't be playing until he gets his life and these issues he's dealing with taken care of."That means White, a former Hopkins star, will sit out his team's season opener Friday night against Tennessee Tech.
