UCLA basketball freshmen fly home after one-week detainment in China

UCLA Athletics announced Tuesday that the three freshmen accused of shoplifting have boarded a flight back to Los Angeles.

The commissioner added that UCLA also made "significant efforts" to resolve the situation for their three players.

Guard LiAngelo Ball, brother of Los Angeles Lakers rookie guard Lonzo Ball, and forwards Cody Riley and Jalen Hill did not play in the team's victory over Georgia Tech on Saturday in Shanghai.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed in an email that Trump raised the matter with Xi, The Post reported.

US Senate Holds Hearing on President's Nuclear Authority
Tuesday's hearing reflected the "exceptional nature" of the present context, said Senator Chris Murphy, a Democrat from CT . Ultimately, the panel warned against legislative changes to rein in the President's authority to exercise nuclear authority.

The players were questioned last week over allegations they stole sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store next to a hotel in Hangzhou, where UCLA was staying during a season-opening trip.

If the three Bruins are going to be detained in China for another two weeks, they could miss up to five games before they get back on US soil, missing contests against Central Arkansas, South Carolina State, Creighton, Baylor/Wisconsin and UC Irvine.

The players were released on bail last Wednesday and have been staying at hotel in Hangzhou, awaiting a decision from authorities that could range from release to fines to years of detainment.

UCLA, one of the most storied names in USA college basketball with 11 men's NCAA championships, won Saturday's game in Shanghai 63-60 without the three players. The athletes were unable to play in the game, and they remain in China awaiting their fate while the rest of their team returned to the USA days ago.
