ESPN reported that wiretaps of phone conversations reveal that Miller told Dawkins to deal directly with him when it came to money, not former Arizona assistant Emanuel "Book" Richardson. Ayton still appeared in the team's lineup, and the team released a statement saying that he remains eligible to play. For over 10 minutes Ayton did not attempt a shot and didn't make the shot in the last 15:51, the impending result led to OR jumping to take control of the game and ultimately the win. As expected, Romar said he didn't know anything about the alleged payments until the Yahoo! report came out.
The Arizona offense was rolling out of the gates, as the Cats scored 31 points in the first 10:10 of action.
UA now sits one game up in the loss column over USC and could clinch the No. 1 seed in the Pac-12 Tournament with a win over Stanford on Thursday. It impacted UA's night greatly and when it was combined with 17 turnovers it was too much for the team to handle to end its road trip to the OR schools.
"It was just a situation that was tough".
A dunk from UA's Rawle Alkins generated a foul from Kenny Wooten under the basket, but Alkins was called for a technical foul after apparently jawing at Wooten. "Everybody was locked in and focused". If the feds can weed out the runners, advisers and agents who prey on vulnerable players and their families, more power to them. However, he did not coach in Saturday night's game at Oregon. They combined for five steals and six rebounds, providing jolts of energy whenever the Ducks needed one. His layup three minutes into the second half made it 53-40 before OR rallied for a split of the season series. Then, in the second half, Kigab's steal set up Elijah Brown's three-pointer that put OR up 65-64, the Ducks' first lead of the night.
"They were relentless", Phelps said of Oregon.
Jackson-Cartwright didn't want to go into details about Miller's departure, nor did Romar have much to add. 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.
OR hits the road for the final two games of the regular season against Washington and Washington State. OR wasn't able to finish it off from there, but the Ducks were in control throughout overtime, earning a signature victory for the season. Elijah Brown finished the game with 30 points hitting 15 of 17 from the free throw line. Elijah Brown hit three free throws to pull OR within two 64-62 as the crowd again came to their feet.
