Arizona basketball: Sean Miller addresses Allonzo Trier rumors

The Wildcats’ head coach was asked about internet rumors surrounding his best returning player

Over the last week, the internet has been buzzing as there are rumors about Arizona Wildcats wing Allonzo Trier possibly facing a year-long suspension, as tweeted out by many including Arizona alum and ESPN employee Corey Williams.

Williams went on to delete this tweet after being informed that Trier took part in the team’s picture day, which isn’t really an indication of much.

Arizona head coach Sean Miller was asked about these rumors after the Red-Blue Game, and he gave the answer everyone expected.

"I can’t really respond," Miller stated. "I think you’re talking about the rumors that are out there, and I can’t respond to that."

Miller said the same when asked if there was a timetable for a decision to be made, and also when asked if it’s disappointing to hear those rumors out there.

Miller did not shut down or say that the rumors are false however.

It should be noted that Trier received the loudest ovation, by far, of any of the current players during player intros prior to the Red-Blue Game, so it seemed apparent that a fair number of people in the building knew what was going on.

I would not expect any actual news to come on this front in the immediate future, but will be something to watch for over the next several weeks.
