3 UCLA Basketball Players Headed Home After Brief Detainment In China

LiAngelo Ball, seen during an exhibition game in Los Angeles on Nov. 1, is one of three UCLA players to have been detained by Chinese authorities, along with Jalen Hill and Cody Riley. Ball is a younger brother of NBA rookie Lonzo Ball.

President Trump said he spoke with China’s president about the players, who were detained on suspicion of shoplifting. “The matter has been resolved,” according to Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott.
