MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Minnesota coach Tubby Smith says the status of freshman Royce White hasn't changed.
White claimed in a video posted on YouTube last week he was leaving the program. But Smith said after Tuesday's practice he had not spoken with White recently, and that he remains suspended until his legal situation is resolved.
White pleaded guilty this month to disorderly conduct and theft for a transgression at the Mall of America this fall. He has also been part of an investigation into an alleged laptop theft on campus, a case which has yet to lead to any arrests. White says he is innocent of any wrongdoing in that incident.
Smith says he hopes both White and fellow suspended forward Trevor Mbakwe can resolve their situations in the new year.
