The sources said police had released the three on condition that they remain at their luxury hotel in Hangzhou while the legal process plays out.

Responding to a Yahoo Sports report that said the UCLA players face three to 10 years in prison, Jerome Cohen, the New York University U.S. -Asia Law Institute's faculty director, told USA TODAY Sports that such a predicament is "extremely unlikely."

UCLA's LiAngelo Ball is one of the three players arrested in China on shoplifting charges.

Alford rejoined the rest of UCLA's team in Shanghai on Wednesday morning after the players were released.

UCLA's freshman basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley are making headlines.

"UCLA is cooperating fully with local authorities", Scott said. His father, LaVar Ball, is also in China and told ESPN he was "going to wait until I get more intel on what's going on" before commenting.

Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said the conference was directing specific questions about what transpired to UCLA.

Van Gundy said. "Missing all that school, and then force-feeding their fans the idea of 'student-athletes.' If it's such a cultural excursion, what is UCLA doing in the Louis Vuitton sunglass section?" As he was leaving the hotel, LaVar Ball downplayed LiAngelo'a arrest, telling ESPN: "He'll be fine". "Whether in the United States or overseas, we expect our student-athletes to uphold the highest standards", he added. The freshman were suspected for shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton near the hotel that the team is staying in.

The fact that LiAngelo is part of the new first family of basketball has added attention to the case. A former college basketball player who has been training his sons since they were kids, LaVar Ball said he could beat Michael Jordan one-on-one and that Lonzo, while still in college, was better than two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry.
