Family of Arizona Wildcats star Deandre Ayton 'disgusted' by ESPN report

Posted February 26, 2018

ESPN reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has records of wiretapped phone conversations between Miller and Christian Dawkins, a runner for a prominent sports agency, in which Miller talked about paying $100,000 to get star high-school prospect Deandre Ayton to sign with Arizona.

"I thought Deandre was a complete and total man out there among boys", Arizona assistant coach Mark Phelps said on the team's postgame radio show. Ayton still appeared in the team's lineup, and the team released a statement saying that he remains eligible to play.

Gordon was the Wildcats' second-leading scorer that season, averaging 12.4 points per game, and the Wildcats' leading rebounder, averaging 8.0 boards per game.

Miller allegedly told Christian Dawkins who was working as a runner for ASM agent Andy Miller at the time to discuss "money" with him when it came to paying Ayton for coming to the school.

There were some about the game, mainly about how Arizona let OR comeback from a 13-point second-half deficit, but most the questions were about people who weren't available.

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.

Paul White had 16 points and Payton Pritchard had 13 points for the Ducks (19-10, 9-7), who overcame a 13-point deficit in the second half and have won four of six.

Brown went from attempting four free throws over his past eight games to shooting 17 against the Wildcats. Though allowing OR to shoot 43% is respectable, allowing them to shoot 15 more shots is another great way to lose games.

For the Ducks to have any prayer of an at-large bid, they needed to win Saturday night.

Arizona pushed the lead back to double digits in the first two minutes of the second half.

Arizona was caught up in the first round of the corruption scandal in September. Elijah Brown scored 22 of his season-high 30 points after halftime.
