[Buddha-l] Pali texts in China?

my professor of Asian history used to claim Pali texts were brought into
China during the first centuries of our era. I had never read anything about
that. The closest lineage I can imagine to be near to the Pali canon would
be the Chû-shê school (later Kusha in Japan), but that would be more of a
Sarvastivada type of thing, than Theravada. And then again, for now, I know
of no Pali text of the Sarvastivadins.

Any suggestions?
