  • Archie Miller says he has ‘no thoughts’ on the Sean Miller situation

    NEW YORK — Following his team’s loss to Rutgers in the Big Ten Tournament at Madison Square Garden, Indiana coach Archie Miller was asked if he had any thoughts on his brother Sean Miller’s situation at Arizona.

    “No thoughts at all on what’s going on out there,” Archie said after Indiana lost to Rutgers, 76-69. “He is my brother, that’s big, that’s my family. Anything that’s discussed, that’s family, that stays within us. But no thoughts on what’s going on out there with them.”

    A defiant Sean Miller on Thursday called ESPN’s report that the FBI has wiretapped conversations of Miller discussing a $100,000 payment to secure Deandre Ayton “false and defamatory” and vowed to continue coaching the Wildcats.

    After Miller read a 4 1/2-minute statement and did not take any questions, University President Robert C. Robbins and AD Dave Heeke said Miller would remain the school’s coach.

    Meantime, Sports Illustrated reported later Thursday via a source that Ayton is not the player being discussed by Miller on the wiretap, raising the possibility that Miller could pursue legal action against ESPN.

    ESPN issued the following statement: “We stand by our reporting.”
