No place for Lavar Ball in sports world

No place for Lavar Ball in sports world

"I just want to play, period".

It was announced this week that Ball has withdrawn from UCLA in part because of a perceived unfair treatment from the university in the wake of his overseas arrest for shoplifting.

"LiAngelo has been, since coming back (from China), he's been tremendous", Alford said during media availability on Tuesday. They've played eight games without the sharp-shooting guard and fellow freshmen Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, compiled a 7-1 record heading into Wednesday's game against Montana (5-3) at 8 p.m.at Pauley Pavilion, and don't plan to slow down after this week's additional drama. Ball, Hill and Riley publicly apologized for shoplifting while reading prepared statements at a campus news conference on November 15.

With LaVar Ball yanking his son out of college in the classic, "this isn't going my way so I'm taking my ball and going home", move, there are surely parents throwing their hands up in the air filled with anger and disgust.

Remembering Montreal and indigenous women

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.

The Big Baller Brand CEO is looking for a possible landing spot for his two sons, LiAngelo and LaMelo, after he recently pulled the former from UCLA.

"Lavar Ball should've been a lot more thankful, instead of showboating, like he usually does", junior Vaughn Jenkins said. This tweet confronting Ball came only days after Trump called out the three players, demanding a thank you for what he did for them.

LaVar Ball said at the time that "one of the main reasons [LiAngelo Ball] went to UCLA" was to play basketball.

Trump tweeted after the three players returned to the USA, taking the credit for their safe return and taking shots at Ball for being ungrateful. Three UCLA basketball players - Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley - detained in China on suspicion of shoplifting returned home, where they might be disciplined by the school as a result of the worldwide scandal. In fact, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith sounded off on Ball during a Tuesday morning rant on ESPN's First Take.

The university disciplinary process via the office of student conduct is ongoing, Alford said Tuesday, adding that he didn't have a timeline for when it would be finished. "Why for? I didn't make that decision", he said.

"We just learned through reports yesterday, I think shorty before or after practice" Alford said. "I'm at the Ostin Center every day working, so if they need to talk, they know where to find me".
