Attorney says Arizona center Ayton has abided by all NCAA rules

Arizona's Sean Miller won't coach, but Deandre Ayton will play on Saturday

Sean Miller will not coach Arizona vs. Oregon amid FBI probe, per reports

The 7-foot-1, 252-pounder is averaging 19.6 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 1.9 blocks per game, and is leading the Wildcats to a 22-6 record.

Ayton had a double double by the time the buzzer went off in the first half with 17 points and 11 rebounds to lead all scorers with his 11 rebounds being as many as OR had as a team in the opening 20 minutes.

Paul Kelly, who was hired as outside counsel in October following the arrest of then-assistant coach Emanuel "Book" Richardson, said in a statement to ESPN he is confident Ayton, a freshman, will retain full eligibility to continue playing this season.

Beating the Wildcats at full strength would have carried more weight, though the committee will note that Arizona had the full services of Ayton, the likely No. 1 pick who was linked to a $100,000 bribe in an ESPN report published Friday night. Trier and Ayton are Arizona's top two scorers. It's possible Ayton might also be forced to sit out, and who knows how much longer Miller will be coaching and sweating through his shirt?

Miller did not coach Saturday's game, as he and the school said stepping aside was in the "best interests" of the team.

In all likelihood, Miller will be fired from Arizona, just as Rick Pitino was canned at Louisville after similar allegations.

Chiefs Finalizing Deal To Send Marcus Peters To Rams
During his three seasons with the Chiefs, there has been a long history of character concerns and reports of Peters wanting out. Look at it this way: In 2017, the Chiefs' top corners were Peters (elite), Mitchell (tons of questions) and Nelson (solid).

"I continue to fully support the University's efforts to fully investigate this matter", Miller said in a statement.

The distractions of the current FBI investigation within college basketball didn't appear to bother Arizona men's basketball freshman Deandre Ayton on Saturday as the Wildcats took on the Oregon Ducks in Eugene. For now, my thoughts are with our team.

The University of Kentucky said they reviewed the Yahoo!

From the get-go, Ayton set the tone, though it wasn't enough to get the win. It's tough to envision the Wildcats winning this game, and NCAA futures tickets on Arizona - now at 15-1 odds - can be used as toilet paper.

I'll admit to having conflicted feelings about using federal resources to chase down cheating in college basketball. White managed 16 points and was in on numerous double- and triple-teams OR used against Ayton, who had 28 points with 18 rebounds. It was a return to the head coaching spot he held at his previous stops including Washington for the last 15 years before arriving in Tucson to begin this season.

Romar is in his first season at Arizona under Miller.
