Troubled Arizona loses 98-93 to Oregon


Miller said in a statement that he is confident he will be vindicated but did not coach Arizona in Saturday's 98-93 overtime loss to OR, nor did he fly back to the university on the team charter.

Miller, 49, has coached at Arizona since 2009.

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).

Dawkins was accused of wire fraud in December, and was also suspected in Yahoo's report, alongside ASM Sports founder Andy Miller, for granting impermissible loans and payments to players from Alabama, Duke, Kentucky, and Michigan State. The one that has received the most attention in recent days involves the University of Arizona and its pursuit of talented center Deandre Ayton. Miller's brother, Archie, coaches at Indiana. He is averaging 19.6 points and 10.9 rebounds per game and is being discussed as a potential first overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

Ayton's family claims his commitment to Arizona had nothing to do with money and everything to do with relationships and proximity.

But they say though they know paying out these players isn't ethical, they aren't sure there's any way to fix the system. "We dealt with it the way we dealt with it tonight, and tomorrow we'll see what happens".'s report does not provide direct quotes captured on wiretap from Miller but cited sources "familiar with the government's evidence". Dawkins is the 24-year-old associate who worked for former National Basketball Association agent Andy Miller and had his transactional records exposed earlier Friday in a Yahoo Sports report.

Asked whether the NCAA has been in touch with Arizona, Emmert said, "We've been in touch with every school that has a student-athlete involved [in the FBI investigation into the sport]".

Arizona freshman Deandre Ayton has been ruled eligible Saturday against OR despite allegations claiming he was paid to play for the Wildcats.

Former Arizona assistant coach Book Richardson was charged in September.

"The telephone calls between Miller and Dawkins were among 3,000 hours of conversations intercepted from Dawkins' phone by the Federal Bureau of Investigation". Richardson was officially fired by Arizona on January 11.
