Arizona basketball: University not commenting on Allonzo Trier situation due to privacy concerns

A little more public info from U of A now

NCAA Basketball: Boise State at Arizona Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Prior to the start of the 2016-17 Arizona Wildcats season, ESPN’s Andy Katz caught up with Arizona Athletic Director Greg Byrne.

Katz asked Byrne about the Allonzo Trier situation, and Arizona’s AD gave a little more on the reason there has not been a public comment to this point from anyone.

If you can’t read it, here it is verbatim:

Allonzo Trier's status remains unchanged. Arizona AD Greg Byrne said due to privacy concerns, the university will have no comment. Trier was pulled from Pac-12 media day and wasn't in uniform for either exhibition game. Trier did not make the trip to Hawaii.

We have alluded to this being the reason that Sean Miller has not been able to comment on anything with regards to Trier, but now a university official has made that so.

When looking at a timetable on a final decision on when we’ll know if Trier will play for the Wildcats again, there really isn’t one. It’s going to be frustrating for Arizona fans, but there isn’t anything the school can do about this one. The process just has to play itself out.

Arizona takes the court next on Tuesday when Cal State Bakersfield travels to McKale Center. That game is scheduled to tip-off at 8 PM MT on Pac-12 Networks.
