UCLA Basketball Players Coming Home.

LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill are returning home after be accused of shoplifting at the posh Louis Vuitton store near their hotel in Hangzhou, China, last week. Commissioner Larry Scott said in a statement Tuesday morning. “We are all very pleased that these young men have been allowed to return home to their families and university,” Scott said in the statement. “We are grateful for the role that our Chinese hosts played, and for the courtesy and professionalism of the local authorities. We also want to acknowledge UCLA’s significant efforts on behalf of their student-athletes. Finally, we want to thank the President, the White House and the U.S. State Department for their efforts towards resolution.” A criminal offense like shoplifting can carry a punishment of up to 10 years in prison in China. The UCLA basketball team traveled to China to play Georgia Tech in this year’s Pac-12 China game. The rest of the team returned to the U.S. on Saturday. Questions about punishment from the university or conference remain uncertain. LiAngelo Ball is the younger brother of Lonzo Ball, point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers.
