Among the three players was LiAngelo Ball, LaVar’s middle son, whose career at UCLA was expected to start this week. The Bruins team had been over in China since the weekend in advance of its season-opening game in Shanghai against Georgia Tech. Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, also freshmen, were the other two players arrested.
We are aware of the matter involving UCLA student-athletes in Hangzhou, China and we are gathering more information,” the team said in a statement. “The University is cooperating fully with local authorities on this matter, and we have no further comment at this time.”[/ex
Trump tweeted Sunday: "Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!"
Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!
