Allonzo Trier failed PED test, won appeal vs NCAA

ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports the sophomore guard's suspension stems from a failed test for a performance-enhancing drug. It is unclear if that change occurred after Trier conditionally won his appeal, though Miller said at the time it represented nothing.

In a UA statement issued Wednesday night, Trier said he was "shocked" that he tested positive for a trace amount of a banned PED in a random NCAA drug test earlier this season.

Trier was suspended but appealed the decision. His eligibility remained in question throughout the non-conference schedule as he was allowed to travel with the team, but not dress for games.

The Wildcats are 16-2 without Trier and led the Pac 12 entering Wednesday. According to Goodman, the unnamed drug still appeared in his system during a test taken in the past two weeks.

"I have never knowingly taken a banned substance". All year long, Trier has been sitting out but has been allowed to practice with the team without official word from the university or the NCAA of the reason the sophomore was missing games. Trier, arguably the most talented guard on Arizona's loaded roster, has been relegated to the bench, where he's become the team's most vocal and visible cheerleader; for three months, nobody knew why. He's remained on Arizona's bench throughout the season but coach Sean Miller never gave clarity to the situation.

ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports that the 6-foot-5 guard is now serving an NCAA-issued suspension for unknowingly taking a PED offered to him by a family member. Nonetheless, Trier, who led UA in scoring last season, would undoubtedly provide a boost for the Cats, who now have just eight healthy/active scholarship players on their roster. Will Trier be able to jump right back into game action in the postseason?
