Sources: UCLA trio isn’t flying home with team
UCLA freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill could remain in Hangzhou, China, for “a week or two” and are not on the team’s flight back to Los Angeles after the Bruins’ season-opening win over Georgia Tech in Shanghai, sources told ESPN.
The White House confirmed in an email to the Washington Post, which first reported Trump’s involvement, that the president brought up the issue with Xi.
Trump raised the issue during his meeting with Xi on Saturday in Beijing, the source told ESPN. Xi promised Trump that the players would be treated fairly and expeditiously, according to the Post.
