Oregon defeats troubled Arizona 98-93 in OT

Arizona's Sean Miller was caught on tape discussing payment for Deandre Ayton report says

ESPN reported the Federal Bureau of Investigation has audio of Arizona coach Sean Miller discussing a $100,000 payment to star freshman DeAndre Ayton, who will still play Saturday against OR while Miller sits out.

"I was really proud of our guys with the focus we came out with", Romar said. "We dealt with this the way we dealt with it tonight, and we'll move on and see what happens".

Miller left Eugene before the game and did not travel back with the team's charter flight, and Romar said he didn't know how long he might keep coaching in Miller's place.

The school did not specify why Miller didn't coach against OR or if he will sit out any other games.

Greg Hansen of the Arizona Daily Star first reported the news that Miller would not be on the sidelines Saturday night.

"I think he's handled it like a professional", Jackson-Cartwright said.

OR (19-10, 9-7) used a stellar performance at the line and a balanced attack to pick up its second straight win. He appeared to play with more intensity than at any other point this season. The lead remained five at 90-85 when Rawle Alkins broke free for a dunk and was fouled by Wooten, but Alkins drew a technical for jawing at Wooten after the basket, denying the Wildcats a chance to grab momentum. Arizona was up 43-37 at the break. "This doesn't take away from who he is as a person and who he is as a coach".

"I have great respect for Arizona", Altman said.

"It's disappointing to all fans of college basketball".

The Ducks won it Saturday by scoring the first five points of the overtime period, getting a 3-pointer from Payton Pritchard and a layup from Troy Brown, and hanging on from there. The work at the line helped them over a 58.6 shooting percentage and a 35-30 rebounding edge for the Wildcats. It was an odd environment for OR to play in, being at the center of this national story.

CBS Sports' request for comment from Arizona was not immediately returned.

Saturday, the Wildcats came to Matthew Knight Arena - well, a lot of them did - in a state of utter disarray: one star player suspended, another playing under suspicion, their coach banished amid reports that he was caught on wiretap arranging bribes. 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. OR closes on the road against the Washington schools.

It's worth noting that two of Romar's former players at Washington, Markelle Fultz and Dejounte Murray, were mentioned in Yahoo!'s report as among those who received money from the agent the FBI is investigating.

Arizona jumped out to a 7-0 start before MiKyle McIntosh put the Ducks on the board with a three-pointer. He is 70 of 75 on the season for 93.3 percent, best in the Pac-12.

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 was in the lineup, with the school saying in a statement he remains eligible to play. It's not easy, man. "Again, I thought our guys were phenomenal in how we came out and began that game".
