"Although the Federal Bureau of Investigation does not routinely do so (although exceptions have been made), DeAndre's family certainly believes it is appropriate for that law enforcement agency, as well as NCAA and University of Arizona, to make public statements which unquestionably clears DeAndre's good name", the statement said (via ESPN). Deandre Ayton is eligible and will play tonight.

The 7-foot-1 Ayton, widely projected as a top-five pick in this year's National Basketball Association draft, leads Arizona in scoring (19.6 points per game), rebounding (10.9) and blocked shots (1.9).

Brown made two free throws before Alkins completed the three-point play and OR led 92-88.

Arizona now holds a half-game lead over USC (12-5) in the Pac-12 standings.

Ayton played 44 of the 45 available minutes, and Romar said Ayton may have exhausted in the overtime period after such a draining effort in regulation. He is averaging 19.6 points and 10.9 rebounds per game and is being discussed as a potential first overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

Alkins made a breakaway dunk and was fouled by Kenny Wooten with 1:55 left, but Alkins was given a technical foul for saying something to Wooten after the play.

Giants select Wyoming QB Josh Allen in latest Albert Breer mock draft
Perhaps the most prominent NFL Draft pundit, ESPN's Mel Kiper came out with the second edition of his mock draft this week. However, Kiper did mention Davis on several occasions as a late first-round possibility for teams in need of a corner.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car to end discounts for NRA members
Marco Rubio broke with an NRA stance when he announced he would support raising the age from 18 to 21 for "buying a rifle". Activists have also called on public pension funds to divest from gun maker stocks, which were broadly lower on Friday.

So, you knew that Ayton - the projected top pick in the upcoming NBA Draft - would hear it from the OR fans at Matthew Knight Arena.

Brown went from attempting four free throws over his past eight games to shooting 17 against the Wildcats.

For the Ducks to have any prayer of an at-large bid, they needed to win Saturday night. They really do. They need to start paying players more.

All that said, Jackson-Cartwright said it was "tough" to be without Miller and Romar said the same during his interview. "So it's tough", Romar said. His layup three minutes into the second half made it 53-40 before OR rallied for a split of the season series. Elijah Brown hit three free throws to pull OR within two 64-62 as the crowd again came to their feet.

Eventually the Ducks worked down what had turned into a 13-point lead early in the second half and took the 65-64 advantage at the 9:08 mark with Elijah Brown capping a 12-2 run on 3-pointer. Then, in the second half, Kigab's steal set up Elijah Brown's three-pointer that put OR up 65-64, the Ducks' first lead of the night.
