Sean Miller, Deandre Ayton scandal takes center stage in Eugene

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

Federal Bureau of Investigation wiretaps caught Arizona coach Sean Miller discussing paying $100,000 to ensure five-star freshman Deandre Ayton would enroll and play for the Wildcats, according to a report late Friday from ESPN.

Saturday's game was the second for Arizona without Allonzo Trier (failed drug test) and Ira Lee (concussion), and the first without Head Coach Sean Miller. The player in question, freshman Deandre Ayton, still mustered a dominant performance Saturday night.

It became the biggest story in college basketball before the Wildcats took the floor at Matthew Knight Arena, but once UA (22-7, 12-4 Pac-12) was finally able to play some actual basketball it was the man at the center of the story who flexed his muscle and showed his dominance to start the game.

Brown made two free throws before Alkins completed the three-point play and OR led 92-88.

Washington 68, California 51 - At Berkeley, Calif., Jaylen Nowell scored 23 points and Washington used a 16-2 run midway through the second half to pull away to victory over California in Pac-12 Conference play.

Ayton is now on the Wildcats and widely considered one of the best players in the country.

Ayton started against OR and had 28 points and 18 rebounds in the loss. Kenny Wooten picked up a technical foul with just under two minutes left in the first overtime.

Since Ayton played against the Ducks, it's unlikely he sits going forward even if there's a cloud around him and his team in the NCAA Tournament. White had four and Brown, Pritchard and McIntosh had three apiece. And that was the case on Saturday night in Eugene. Though allowing OR to shoot 43% is respectable, allowing them to shoot 15 more shots is another great way to lose games.

"I think they were mad", Altman said. "Again, I thought he did a great job and handled it in a very mature fashion", Romar said.

All that said, Jackson-Cartwright said it was "tough" to be without Miller and Romar said the same during his interview. Elijah Brown hit three free throws to pull OR within two 64-62 as the crowd again came to their feet.

Ayton finished with 28 points and 18 rebounds, despite being under-utilized for a majority of the second half.

The Oregon Ducks won the game 98-93 with five players in double figures.
