Allonzo Trier Declared Ineligible by NCAA; Arizona Appealing Decision

Allonzo Trier Declared Ineligible by NCAA; Arizona Appealing Decision

Arizona star Allonzo Trier has been ruled ineligible by the NCAA for again testing positive for performance enhancing drugs, the school has announced.

"I have never knowingly taken a banned substance", Trier said in a statement last season.

His second-biggest problem is that the detail of this circumstance does not fit easily into a headline or tweet.

Arizona struggled initially, trailing 8-3 after less than three minutes when the Wildcats missed three of their first four shots. The school is appealing the NCAA's decision, arguing in the release that the detected substance "appears to be a remnant of a substance, which the NCAA agreed, Allonzo had unknowingly ingested in 2016".

Playing without starter Allonzo Trier and key reserve Ira Lee, the Arizona Wildcats still managed to take a 37-29 halftime lead over Oregon State on Thursday at Gill Coliseum.

Trier, a 6-foot-5, 205-pound junior from Seattle, is averaging 19.6 points per game this season, the second-highest mark in the Pac-12 behind his teammate, freshman center Deandre Ayton. Arizona will appeal the NCAA's ruling, but until further notice, Trier will not be eligible to play for the Wildcats.

In conference games Trier is averaging 18.1 points, which is tied for third in the Pac-12 with Oregon State's Tres Tinkle, and 3.2 assists per game while shooting 52.0 percent from the field and 42.9 percent from beyond the arc.

"The NCAA agreed that I had no knowledge of receiving the substance and my eligibility was restored". It has not been made public how much of the substance was in his system as the NCAA continued to delay his return a year ago; nor is it clear whether the organization would maintain the same standard in this instance.

They're out there now, though.
