MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Minnesota coach Tubby Smith says he's disappointed that star recruit Royce White is being investigated in another theft case.
White is being investigated in the theft of a laptop computer from a student's dorm room last weekend. That comes a week after he was charged with shoplifting and assault stemming from an incident at the Mall of America.
Nobody has been charged in the laptop case.
Smith says White remains suspended indefinitely, and he's still gathering information about White's latest run-with authorities.
White was Minnesota's Mr. Basketball last season at Hopkins and was the prize recruit of this year's class. He will not play for the 25th-ranked Gophers in the season opener Friday night against Tennessee Tech.
