Trump diplomacy: Three UCLA basketball players held for shoplifting in China have been released

(National SentinelPresidential Power: Three UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting and arrested by Chinese police have now been released, likely due to intervention from President Donald J. Trump who is returning today from his first Asian trip.

Media reports say that Freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley were detained in Hangzhou on suspicion of theft after their team defeated Georgia Tech in their season-opening game in Shanghai as part of the annual Pac-12 China game.

Ball is the brother of LA Lakers guard Lonzo Ball.

Their UCLA teammates returned to California on Saturday without them, leaving many to speculate when or whether the Chinese would release the trio.

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott thanked Trump, the White House and the State Department for their efforts in resolving what he called “the incident with authorities in Hangzhou, China.”
