Arizona's Allonzo Trier has been declared ineligible for the reappearance of a banned substance that led to a 19-game suspension last season.

The NCAA notified the school on Thursday that the preseason All-America junior guard tested positive for trace amount of the substance late last month.

Arizona says the amount detected was minuscule by scientific standards and appeared to be a remnant of the undisclosed performance-enhancing drug Trier said he unknowingly ingested last season. The NCAA agreed, the school said.

Depleted Arizona beats Oregon St. in OT

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) Headed to the line with Arizona down two points late in the game, Rawle Alkins thought about his mechanics, as he'd uncharacteristically missed half his free throws on the night.

Utah defeats UCLA for fifth straight win

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Beating the shot clock with a critical basket is a scenario Parker Van Dyke has practiced many times. Van Dyke has done silent countdowns in his head and fired up shots in the gym on many occasions to prepare for such a moment.

Van Dyke earned a chance to do it for real. The junior guard made a pair of 3-pointers late in the shot clock in the final minutes to help Utah edge UCLA for an 84-78 victory on Thursday.
