Lorenzo Romar is obvious candidate to replace Sean Miller at Arizona

Lorenzo Romar is obvious candidate to replace Sean Miller at Arizona

Deandre Ayton scored 28 points and grabbed 18 rebounds but the Ducks held the Cats big man without a field goal in the final 16 minutes of the game including overtime.

Arizona on Saturday has a chance to wrap up at least a share of the Pac-12 regular-season crown, but for now that possibility has lost importance.

An FBI wiretap reportedly caught Miller discussing the payment for Ayton - a highly coveted recruit in the 2017 class - with associates from Andy Miller's ASM Sports agency, according to an ESPN report.

Kelly informed the UA on Sunday morning that he planned to issue the statement on his own.

According to the ESPN report, when Dawkins asked Miller if he should work with assistant coach Emanuel "Book" Richardson to finalize an agreement, Miller told Dawkins he should instead deal directly with him when it came to money.

What remains to be seen is how the selection committee will judge a victory over the Wildcats sans Miller and Allonzo Trier, who was suspended after testing positive for a banned substance.

Fans say they believe the reason the University of Arizona is getting so much attention on the matter is because of how talented Ayton is, and because of the team's expected success heading into March Madness.

Because Miller sat out, many expected Ayton to do the same, but Arizona released a statement confirming his eligibility. Deandre Ayton is eligible and will play tonight. For now, my thoughts are with our team. His absence for Saturday night's game is the latest example of this. His last field goal was a dunk with 10:51 to go in the second half, and his last points came from the line with 6:33 to go in the second half.

The University of Kentucky said they reviewed the Yahoo! OR matched its largest lead to that point in the game when senior Elijah Brown hit two free throws for an 83-78 advantage with 1:30 left in regulation, but Arizona rallied to tie it and Payton Pritchard's attempt at a game-winner at the buzzer didn't fall.

Romar is in his first season at Arizona under Miller.

That indicated the Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed Ayton more than six months ago and that the center, who is projected as a top-5 NBA Draft pick, chose to attend Arizona based on his familiarity with the coaching staff and the state, where he spent some time playing high school basketball.
