Detained UCLA players are doing well as per Spokesperson
A week after the detention of LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill, and Cody Riley under designer sunglass shoplifting accusations, the trio being well catered to as per Chris Carlson, the UCLA Associate Athletic Director. The case has already led President Trump to ask Chinese president Xi Jinping to look after the players and resolve the issue as soon as possible. The trio could not join their teammates as they moved onto Shanghai, and were eventually granted access to stay at a Hyatt Regency.
A police investigation is currently under process, and the employees of many high-profile stores were interviewed later. Louis Vuitton, the store from where the trio has been accused of stealing sunglasses refrained from commenting on the issue. Gucci and Salvatore Ferragamo employees said that they recognise the trio, but they saw nothing unexpected and everything in their store remains to be fine. Hangzhou police kept tight-lipped and didn’t answer any calls about the UCLA players.

Kentucky Men’s Basketball attendance record ten-year low numbers
Kentucky Men’s may have recorded a narrow win over Vermont on Sunday, but their attendance during the match was anything but assuring. The UK students were absent for the first two matches, and the attendance was recorded at 19807. 19184 is the lowest attendance in the last ten years recorded in 2007, but that had its own reasons as the game was played on New Year’s Eve, and that is excusable.
The reason for such dip cannot be categorised yet, but the hike from $5 to $10 for UK Students cannot be ignored as well.
