Five Tar Heels were invited to North Carolina's Elite Eight press conference the day after a 101–86 win over Indiana on Friday, and sophomore Theo Pinson was not one of them.

So, he crashed the party.

Pinson saw 14 minutes of playing time in the win, tallying four points, two rebounds, two assists and two steals. He'll look to earn a spot on the podium in North Carolina's Elite Eight matchup with Notre Dame on Sunday.
