Here’s how Donald Trump helped out UCLA basketball players who got arrested in China

Share this article: LiAngelo Ball is one of three UCLA basketball team players being held in a suspected shoplifting investigation in China.

According to a report over the weekend from ESPN, the players could be in China for another week or two, dependent upon how quickly the legal process can be resolved.

UCLA players LiAngelo Ball - the younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers rookie star Lonzo Ball - and teammates Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were on a flight to Los Angeles, the commissioner of the Pacific-12 conference, Larry Scott, said in a statement.

News of the arrests was widespread not only in the United States but also in China, breaking just a day before Trump arrived in the country.

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said early Tuesday that the Bruins players, detained November 7, are on a plane bound for Los Angeles, adding that the "matter has been resolved to the satisfaction of the Chinese authorities".

Duke vs. Michigan State
Said games are often highlighted by various early-season tournaments, none more noteworthy than the annual Champions Classic . Michigan State (1-1) shot 51 percent from the field, but was outrebounded 46-34 by the long and athletic Blue Devils.


The UCLA team had been in China for a game against Georgia Tech in Shanghai on Saturday, which UCLA won 63-60. "They [the Chinese authorities] do not play games". It was reported that the three UCLA players could serve up to 10 years in prison, but instead, they only stayed an extra few days in a luxury hotel before departing Tuesday evening.

The case is almost a conclusion and indications are that charges against the three players will be reduced.

"It's a very, very rough situation with what happened to them", Trump said.

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". Xi said he wanted to be sure that the three UCLA players are to be treated fairly and expeditiously, as said by a USA official who spoke anonymously because of the sensitivity of the situation.
