3 Bruins re­turn home from China

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - BASKETBALL -

LOS AN­GE­LES — Three UCLA bas­ket­ball play­ers de­tained in China on sus­pi­cion of shoplift­ing have been al­lowed to re­turn home, where they may be dis­ci­plined by the school as a re­sult of the in­ter­na­tional scan­dal.

Fresh­men LiAn­gelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Ri­ley ar­rived at Los An­ge­les In­ter­na­tional Air­port on Tues­day af­ter a 12-hour flight from Shang­hai. They ig­nored re­porters’ shouted ques­tions.

Pac-12 Com­mis­sioner Larry Scott said their case “has been re­solved to the sat­is­fac­tion of the Chi­nese au­thor­i­ties.” A per­son with knowl­edge of the Pac-12’s po­si­tion said any dis­ci­pline in­volv­ing the three would be up to UCLA. The team went to China to play its sea­son opener against Ge­or­gia Tech.

UCLA Chan­cel­lor Gene Block said the school is weigh­ing its op­tions. “I want to be clear that we take se­ri­ously any vi­o­la­tions of the law,” he said in a state­ment.
