Arizona’s Athletic Director Dave Heeke & President Robert C. Robbins have released this joint statement:

 

“We have decided that Sean Miller will remain the University of Arizona’s men’s basketball coach.

“Media reports last Friday alleged that Coach Miller was caught on a wiretap discussing a payment with a representative of a sports agency regarding one of our student-athletes. Since those reports broke, we have sought to learn everything that we can from Coach Miller about the allegations. As Coach Miller’s employer, we acted to investigate these reports.

“Earlier this week, we met with Coach Miller at length and asked him direct and pointed questions. He was eager to speak with us and answered every question we asked. At this time we have no reason to believe that Coach Miller violated NCAA rules or any laws regarding the allegation reported in the media. Additionally, he has a record of compliance with NCAA rules, and he has been cooperative with this process.

“While some might be tempted to rush to judgment when there is intense public pressure, due process is the bedrock of fair treatment and acting with integrity. With that in mind, we will continue to pursue every avenue of inquiry available to us during an active federal investigation to fully understand the facts. We recognize that investigation is ongoing, and we will continue to be respectful and cooperative through its conclusion. Steptoe & Johnson continues its investigation into our athletics compliance, and we will carefully review and act on its conclusions. We anticipate this report will be thorough and based on facts.

“We want to thank our student-athletes for the strength they have exhibited during this challenging situation. We are confident that they will continue to respond with commitment, integrity and excellence. Deandre Ayton, who has been subjected to false, public reports that impugned his reputation, has our full support. We ask that the Wildcat Family rally behind these young men and our coaching staff tonight and throughout the rest of our season.

Rutgers travels to Columbus tonight looking for an upset of #16 Buckeyes

PISCATAWAY – Rutgers (13-16, 3-13) plays its final conference road game of the regular season, when it travels to Columbus to meet No. 16/15 Ohio State (22-7, 13-3) in a 7 p.m. (ET) tip-off on Tuesday night at Value City Arena. The Buckeyes are one of five home-and-home match-ups for RU, along with No. 2/1 Michigan State, No. 9/9 Purdue, Nebraska and Illinois. The Buckeyes, Spartans, Boilermakers and Huskers have all achieved 20 victories, have a combined 92-24 (51-13 Big Ten) record, and currently occupy the top four positions in the league standings. The Scarlet Knights have the most difficult conference schedule in the Big Ten according to Ken Pom analysis.  RU has the opportunity to defeat a ranked team on the road for the first time since downing No. 13 Pittsburgh, 77-64, on Jan. 26, 2008.

Rutgers is 11th nationally in offensive rebounding (13.59), 12th in scoring defense (63.6), 19th in rebounding (39.55) and 28th in FG% defense (40.6). The Scarlet Knights are 17th nationally in adjusted defensive efficiency per Ken Pom.

The game will be televised live on BTN with Lisa Byington calling the action and Robbie Hummel providing the commentary.

Ohio State is No. 1 nationally for the most home wins since 2009-10 with a 149-24 (.861) record. Tuesday night will mark the final home, regular season game for seniors Andrew Dakich, Keita Bates-Diop, Kam Williams and Jae’Sean Tate. Tate had 20 points and a career-high 15 rebounds, while Bates-Diop went for 17 points and seven boards in a 74-62 loss at Michigan on Sunday. Bates-Diop was selected to the Naismith Trophy Late Season Watch as well as the John R. Wooden Midseason Watch List. He is one of 20 players who remain in the running for the Wooden Award and among the final 30 for the Naismith Trophy.

Rutgers and Ohio State have met seven times, with the Buckeyes holding a 5-2 series advantage. On Jan. 14, Geo Baker scored 14 points and Corey Sanders add 13, but RU could not overcome its 28.8 percent shooting in a 68-46 loss to OSU at the RAC. Despite the defeat, the Scarlet Knights committed just five turnovers, their fewest ever in a Big Ten game. Rutgers’ last victory in the series was a 66-57 Big Ten Tournament win in Washington, D.C. last season, RU’s first postseason league win. The Buckeyes are 2-0 at home versus the Scarlet Knights.
