LiAngelo Ball, UCLA Teammates Likely to Be Sentenced to House Arrest

Brother of Lakers Guard Lonzo Ball Arrested in Hangzhou

Ball, the younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, plays guard and teammates Hill and Riley are forwards.

The trio was arrested on Tuesday, Nov. 7 at the Hyatt Regency Hangzhou in China, and questioned about a robbery at a nearby Louis Vuitton location. While the three athletes remained in Hangzhou, the rest of UCLA's Bruins basketball team continued their trek to Shanghai to play Georgia Tech on Friday.

In a statement on Weibo earlier Wednesday, LaVar Ball called the incident "unfortunate to both the Ball family and UCLA".

Responding to a Yahoo Sports report that said the UCLA players face three to 10 years in prison, Jerome Cohen, the New York University U.S. -Asia Law Institute's faculty director, told USA TODAY Sports that such a predicament is "extremely unlikely."

Chinese foreign ministry officials previously said that the Chinese government had reported the incident to USA officials.




In the wake of the scandal that saw freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hall arrested for shoplifting, Van Gundy felt the need to vent to his play-by-play partner Dave Patsch, who is a regular on Pac-12 broadcasts, most notably when paired with Bill Walton.

"We are very disappointed by any situation that detracts from the positive student-athlete educational and cultural experience that this week is about", Scott said. "Whether in the United States or overseas, we expect our student-athletes to uphold the highest standards", he added.

That doesn't mean that authorities would necessarily take that long in a case that reportedly involves merchandise taken from a Louis Vuitton store next to the team hotel. "We stand ready to provide appropriate consular assistance for United States citizens".

Lonzo Ball said Wednesday he has not spoken with LiAngelo since reports of the incident emerged.

The Associated Press noted Wednesday that UCLA head coach Steve Alford said the players involved won't feature in the game against the Yellow Jackets, but he couldn't provide any additional details about their status.
