Trump Asks China's President To Help Resolve UCLA Shoplifting Case

Three UCLA basketball players held in China for a week are on their way back to Los Angeles, according to the L.A. Times.

Cody Riley, Jalen Hill and LiAngelo Ball are finally coming home. They were under house arrest at the hotel.

Instead, Trump raised the topic of the three UCLA men's basketball players who were arrested in Hangzhou, accused of stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store near the team's hotel.

Trump spoke to reporters in the Philippines as he prepared to return to Washington after a almost two-week visit to Asia that included an earlier stop in Beijing. It's unclear what direct role Trump played in the players being freed, but the president told reporters in Asia he had a "great conversation" with Xi Jinping about the players. 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.

"We are aware of a situation involving UCLA student-athletes in Hangzhou, China", UCLA Athletics said in a statement.

Delta Airlines staff told the Wall Street Journal that the players, who could have faced a lengthy sentence if convicted, boarded a flight bound for Los Angeles Tuesday in Shanghai.

It became a huge matter on the campus of UCLA, it made waves across the college basketball scene and was such a high-profile story that the U.S. State Department got involved. UCLA is scheduled to host Central Arkansas Wednesday at Pauley Pavilion.

"One-on-one, I'm undefeated, never lost", LaVar Ball told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith on a March episode of "First Take".

The family is now filming a reality show called "Ball in the Family" and recently started an athletic apparel company, Big Baller Brand, "inspired by the Ball brothers".

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.
