The three UCLA basketball players who were arrested for shoplifting in China — LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill, and Cody Riley — are back in the United States. After a strange saga that involved Donald Trump asking China’s president for leniency for the trio of freshmen, all that is left is for the basketball program to respond now that the trio have returned home.
On Wednesday, we learned how UCLA coach Steve Alford plans on disciplining Ball, Hill, and Riley. The program announced that all three players are suspended indefinitely and that they will not be able to travel with the team to away games as punishment for causing a minor international incident.
Alford additionally said that the players “will have to earn their way back,” according to Edward Aschoff of ESPN.
