NCAAB: LiAngelo Ball out on bail

Damon Campbell | 10 November, 2017, 01:14

The comments came after three UCLA basketball players, including LiAngelo Ball, were arrested on charges of shoplifting over an alleged theft at a Louis Vuitton store in China.

"Ball, Riley and Hill are being required by Hangzhou police to remain at their hotel until the legal process is over, which could take days, weeks or even months", he said. The three are now at that hotel and will not take part in Friday's game against Georgia Tech in Shanghai.

The UCLA team was in Hangzhou to visit the headquarters of Alibaba, the e-commerce giant which is sponsoring Friday's game.

A UCLA spokesman did not confirm or deny the information, referring to the school's statement that it was cooperating with local authorities.

When reporters asked LaVar Ball about the situation on Tuesday, the outspoken father of Lonzo, LiAngelo and LaMelo told ESPN that LiAngelo will "be fine" and that the incident "ain't that big a deal".

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

Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said the conference was directing specific questions about what transpired to UCLA. Asked later in the day whether he was anxious about his son, LaVar replied, according to ESPN: "He'll be fine, he'll be fine". "Whether in the United States or overseas, we expect our student-athletes to uphold the highest standards", he added.

LaVar Ball, the father of the Ball athlete family, isn't anxious. The freshman were suspected for shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton near the hotel that the team is staying in.

While the situation hasn't seemed to affect Ball yet, Lakers coach Luke Walton plans to monitor his rookie point guard and speak with him about it Wednesday.

The trio will not play against the Yellow Jackets and could miss additional games. "It ain't that big a deal". "I know they are all over there in China taking care of it, so I will talk to them when they get back".
