Sean Miller Will Not Coach For Arizona vs. Oregon After Damning Report

Sean Miller Will Not Coach For Arizona vs. Oregon After Damning Report

Late on Friday night, ESPN reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has wiretaps of phone conversations where Miller discusses paying $100,000 to make sure freshman forward Deandre Ayton signed with Arizona.

"I believe it is in the best interest of our team that I not coach the game tonight", Miller said in the statement.

Arizona has decided that Ayton is eligible to play.

Deandre Ayton had 28 points and 18 rebounds, one short of season highs in both, and Rawle Alkins had 24 points for the Wildcats (22-7, 12-4), whose lead in the Pac-12 race was cut to one-half game over USC (21-9, 12-5).

OR made 14 of 33 3-pointers, having beaten UA 85-58 last season when they hit 16 3s, and they also capitalized on 17 UA turnovers by scoring 20 points off them while turning the ball over only four times themselves. Arizona is the best team in the Pac-12 and was a clear contender for the NCAA Tournament. Star freshman Deandre Ayton, the recruit referred to in the report, got the start at center in the Wildcats' 98-93, overtime loss to the Ducks. He is averaging 19.9 points and 11.2 rebounds per game in what is expected to be his only college season. For over 10 minutes Ayton did not attempt a shot and didn't make the shot in the last 15:51, the impending result led to OR jumping to take control of the game and ultimately the win.

"They were relentless", Phelps said of Oregon. White had four and Brown, Pritchard and McIntosh had three apiece.

It was an emotional night all around and it even led to the normally calm Romar and Phelps earning a technical foul at one point in the game for UA's bench. "Again, I thought our guys were phenomenal in how we came out and began that game".

Unfortunately for Arizona, it wasn't able to get Ayton the ball in the second half as much as in the first. But the Wildcats also allowed OR to hit five of its first six 3-pointers, some lightly guarded, and the Ducks never fell too far behind.

Romar said he is unsure of when the coaching situation will change or what the next step is for Arizona.

The Ducks made 14 of 33 3-point attempts.

Who Stood Out: Elijah Brown followed up his 19-point effort in Thursday's win over Arizona State by scoring 30 against Arizona, half on 15-of-17 free-throw shooting. White managed 16 points and was in on numerous double- and triple-teams OR used against Ayton, who had 28 points with 18 rebounds.
