While Lonzo Ball is getting geared up to lead the UCLA Bruins into March, and his brothers, LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball, were busy starring for Chino Hills High School, burglars were busy breaking into the family’s Chino Hills, Calif., home.

LaVar Ball, the boys’ outspoken father, told ESPN that the burglars threw a rock through the window of the family’s home but nothing appeared to be taken. A family representative told the sports station that neighbors heard a noise and called the police. When police entered the home, they found several of the family’s belongings in the middle of a room.
