SPOKANE, Wash. -- Burglars in Spokane stole championship hardware belonging to former Gonzaga basketball star Adam Morrison.
The Spokesman-Review reports three men are now in county jail on residential burglary charges. Court documents allege the three men broke into the home of Morrison s parents in Spokane, taking items valued at more than $70,000. The men used the money to purchase three vehicles.
When police found one of the suspects, they found a conference championship ring belonging to Morrison in a car.
Morrison, who was picked third overall in the 2006 NBA draft, won three West Coast Conference tournament championships with the Zags from 2003-2006. He went on to play in the NBA for the Charlotte Bobcats, Los Angeles Lakers and Washington Wizards before competing in Europe. He retired from professional basketball last year.
