UCLA Bruins guard LiAngelo Ball and two other Bruins basketball players could serve three to 10 years in prison if convicted of shoplifting during a team trip to China, an unnamed lawyer told Yahoo Sports' Dan Wetzel Tuesday. Wetzel also spoke to William Nee, an Amnesty International researcher who is familiar with the Chinese court system. Nee noted Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill could also be detained without bail for over a month. "I would say they could be in quite a bit of trouble if they have solid proof that they shoplifted," Nee said of the players' situation. "However, part of it will depend on whether their lawyers, the university, or the U.S. consulate can advocate and negotiate on their behalf."
