UCLA Basketball Players Released From China

UCLA Basketball Players Released From Chinaā€¯

UCLA basketball coach Steve Alford, the three players and athletic director Dan Guerrero will make their first public comments regarding the situation on Wednesday morning in Los Angeles.

Three UCLA basketball players are returning to the U.S. after President Donald Trump reportedly negotiated their release from police in Hangzhou, China.

Cody Riley, Jalen Hill and LiAngelo Ball are finally coming home.

The players landed at Los Angeles International Airport on a flight from Shanghai on Tuesday evening, their heads down. They were detained in China before their annual season-opening Pacific-12 game against Georgia Tech in Hangzhou last week, KCBS reported, citing the university.

Police reportedly came to the players' hotel and took them for questioning for "stealing from a Louis Vuitton store next to the UCLA basketball team's hotel in Hangzhou".

Trump said that Xi is helping out with the case and has been "terrific on that subject" and added that he hopes the players are able to return home soon.

JC Penney Will Open On Thanksgiving While You're Still Eating Turkey
Penney right when tens of millions of Americans are sitting down to table for their Thanksgiving meal. There will also be online deals the weekend after Thanksgiving with free shipping on everything.

The players reportedly will be speaking to the media Wednesday at 11 a.m. PT. The President followed up by pointing out that these players could have gone to jail for a very long time. Trump, while on a tour of Asia, urged his Chinese counterpart to let them go, and may have been looking for some credit Wednesday. It also helps that US Chief of Staff John F. Kelly remains in personal contact with Chinese authorities and the families of the players.

School officials said the charges were withdrawn by Chinese authorities after the players admitted guilt. "In this particular case, both Athletics and the Office of Student Conduct will review this incident and guide any action with respect to the involved students".

"I want to be clear that we take seriously any violations of the law", he said.

However, some have pointed out that UCLA officials might be concerned with how well lengthy suspensions may sit with LaVar Ball, LiAngelo's father, who was with the Bruins in China when the arrests occurred and said of them, "It ain't that big of a deal".

US diplomats have been in contact with the families of the players and have also spoken with UCLA head coach Steve Alford.
