UCLA Basketball: Steve Alford 'Surprised' By LiAngelo Ball's Departure

Share

LiAngelo Ball, along with fellow freshmen Jalen Hill and Cody Riley, are now serving indefinite suspensions for their participation in a shoplifting incident during the Bruins' trip to China last month.

LiAngelo's plan to withdraw his son from school was first reported by TMZ. "I'm not anxious about money".

Alford did not know if LiAngelo Ball had officially withdrawn from UCLA. His brother Lonzo played one season with the Bruins before being drafted No. 2 by the Lakers.

Marcus Peters' suspension has made Raiders fans really happy
On Sunday, Peters was penalized for throwing a penalty flag into the stands against the Jets. "That's why he came back out". Against the Jets, Peters let his frustration boil over, picking up a referee's flag and launched it into the crowd.

Please mark the time of death on the Ball family phenomenon. This was supposed to be a three-season relationship, a Lonzo-LiAngelo-LaMelo succession of one-and-done, with LaVar shouting the entire time. And it's going to be messy. They have been barred from all team activities. Arturs Stalbergs, head coach of the Lithuanian basketball team KK Lietkabelis Panevezys, offered a job for the Balls, although it likely wasn't one LaVar had in mind.

"They gonna follow me even if it's wrong", Ball said of his children.

The three players are subject to review for violating the university's student conduct code, which includes a section on theft. "So I don't know if there's an adjustment, we just keep moving forward". "It's just you and all the other officers, and they don't speak English", Ball added.

Gus Malzahn continues to field questions regarding future at Auburn, Arkansas job
Malzahn is 45-21 in five seasons at Auburn and has apparently done enough for the school to thwart him from leaving for Arkansas . Auburn's head coach was pressed on the rumors and reports coming out of Arkansas throughout this past weekend.

The middle son, LiAngelo, was involved in a highly publicized incident in China that resulted in the arrest of three UCLA players for theft from a handful of high-end stores during the UCLA men's basketball team's trip overseas for a game.

LaVar Ball and President Donald Trump have engaged in a public war of words since the three players returned from China. LaMelo committed to attend UCLA in two years. If he is a clown, then I definitely want him out of the news cycle and if he is an over-affectionate father/aggressive businessman, I hope he can learn to do those things behind the scenes and let his sons create their own spotlight, without dragging them into the eye of the public because of their association to the CEO of the "Big Baller Brand" who can apparently beat M.J.in a game of pickup. The NCAA was asked by ESPN about the matter and said, "Generally speaking, a college athlete or prospect paid for use of their athletics reputation or ability risks their future eligibility in that sport".
