In this Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017 file photo, UCLA NCAA college basketball player LiAngelo Ball attends a news conference at UCLA in Los Angeles. The father of UCLA guard LiAngelo Ball says he plans to withdraw his son from school because of concerns related to the freshman's indefinite suspension for his admitted participation in a shoplifting incident during the Bruins' trip to China. The younger Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley have been barred from all team activities as part of their suspension for shoplifting from three high-end stores last month. UCLA coach Steve Alford says he respects the Ball family's decision.
