From Reuters - November 11, 2017

(Reuters) - Three UCLA mens basketball players detained in China over allegations of shoplifting this week will not be on the teams return flight to the United States on Saturday, ESPN reported.

The three students - freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill - will remain in Hangzhou for a week or two, ESPN said on Saturday, citing unnamed sources.

Ball, Riley and Hill were questioned about alleged stealing from a Louis Vuitton store during the teams visit to Hangzhou, home of the games sponsor, Alibaba.

They were taken into police custody on Tuesday morning and released early on Wednesday, a source told Reuters.

The players have been confined to their hotel in Hangzhou, and did not accompany the team when it traveled to Shanghai for its season-opener against Georgia Tech, which UCLA won 63-60.
