The North Carolina men’s basketball team was dealing with some off-court drama during last week’s ACC Tournament.

According to Joe Johnson of the News & Observer, the thief escaped with a Playstation 4, and Xbox One, clothes, a MacBook Pro, and a financial document belonging to guard Cameron Johnson. The loot was worth upwards of $8,000.
It’s not quite as bold as someone walking into the locker room after the Super Bowl and swiping gear, but it’s certainly something. Here’s hoping the Tar Heels get their stuff back.
