    UCLA basketball players detained in China, headed back to the US

    Three UCLA basketball players detained in China on suspicion of shoplifting were headed back to the United States on Tuesday after U.S. President Donald Trump said he had sought the help of Chinese President Xi Jinping in the case.

    Staff for Delta Air Lines confirmed that the players had boarded a Delta flight from Shanghai to Los Angeles.

    "What they did was unfortunate," Trump told reporters earlier in Manila. He said the trio, who have been held since last week, could have faced long prison sentences, and described Xi's response as "terrific." "They're working on it right now," Trump said.

    Trump had raised the issue with Xi during a dinner held during the U.S. leader's Nov. 8 to 10 state visit to Beijing. Trump was in the Philippines capital for a summit of Asian leaders. he three basketball players from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) were detained by police on Nov. 7 in the eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou over allegations of shoplifting. They were not on the team's return flight to the United States on Saturday.

    Stupid move by their part, by shoplifiting sun glasses.

    Especially LiAngelo Ball

    Glad they are back home but I suspect the UCLA basketball progam will have something to say about their future playing time.
