According to a source, Xi pledged to look into the matter and ensure that the players will be treated fairly.

LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley did not play in UCLA's win over Georgia Tech on Friday night, and did not travel back with the team.

President Trump reportedly brought the case up with Xi Jinping during his recent visit to the country.

Ball, who is the brother of Los Angeles Lakers rising star rookie point guard Lonzo Ball and the son of the outspoken Big Baller Brand founder LaVar Ball, now remains in China with his two teammates.

Donald Trump is trying to do what the UCLA men's basketball team couldn't do: take its Ball and go home.

Trump was later notified of the UCLA players' detainment through his aides. He'll be fine. Everybody making it a big deal.
