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 were on a plane back to Los An­ge­les that was due to land late Tues­day af­ter­noon af­ter a 12-hour flight from Shang­hai.
