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

And that was the case on Saturday night in Eugene.

ESPN reports that Miller discussed paying $US100,000 in order to make sure that now-freshman Deandre Ayton signed with Arizona. The Ducks made four of their first five three-point attempts to stay within shouting distance, but ultimately won by outrebounding the Wildcats 30-28 the rest of the game, and scoring 20 points off the 17 Arizona turnovers.

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.

Richardson, who has worked alongside Miller for the last 10 seasons at both Xavier and Arizona, was among the four assistant coaches arrested on September 27 following a two-year FBI investigation into bribery and corruption in NCAA basketball. Arizona also was without preseason All-America guard Allonzo Trier, who tested positive for the same banned substance that cost him 19 games last season.

Well, during the first half of Saturday night's Arizona State-Oregon State game on ESPNU, play-by-play man Steve Quis said that Miller was "relieved of his duties from the University of Arizona".

Now Arizona will return back looking to find some comfort at home and return to a bit of normalcy while things get sorted out with Miller and the program.

"I continue to fully support the University's efforts to fully investigate this matter", Miller said in a statement. For now, my thoughts are with our team.

Arizona plays at OR on Saturday night.

The Wildcats will be doing a lot of vacating before this is over, so they'd might as well get their money's worth from Ayton while they can.

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. But he spent the previous 15 seasons as head coach at Washington, with a 298-196 record (.603 winning percentage) and six NCAA Tournament appearances.

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.

OAR's defending world champion Evgenia Medvedeva took the silver with 238.26 and Canadian Kaetlyn Osmond won bronze with 231.02. But even though the numbers can explain why that outcome wasn't reversed, something about the system still feels imperfect.
