UCLA Chancellor Gene Block has issued a statement on the release of LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill.

To the Campus Community:

I know many of you have heard the news over the past week about three of our men’s basketball student-athletes who were detained by police in connection with a shoplifting incident in China. Since that time, our primary focus has been on bringing our students back safely, and I am pleased to report that they are now returning home.

I would like to express my gratitude to all who helped us get to this point.
