LaMelo Ball will return to the United States to play high school basketball at the Spire Institute in Ohio.
Ball had played in Lithuania with BC Vytautas Prienai.
“I’m excited to return to school and rejoin my class on the court for my senior year,” said Ball. “Playing in international competition was a great experience. I learned and matured so much. I appreciated the JBA experience my dad provided for me. I think it helped my development. I can’t wait to play with my peers.”
Ball is eligible to play because Spire is a prep school.
