Arizona junior guard Allonzo Trier will also be returning to the Wildcats on Thursday night, the school announced in a release.

Earlier in the day, head coach Sean Miller announced he would be returning to coach the Wildcats as the team now also gets Trier back after a two-game absence. The NCAA declared Trier ineligible last week due to a second positive test for a banned substance, as Arizona planned to appeal the claim. The school said the positive test was leftover from in Trier’s system from the 2016 suspension.

“We just received word that Allonzo Trier has been cleared for participation and will play in tonight’s game versus Stanford. We appreciate the NCAA granting this appeal and their understanding of this unique situation,”

With Trier back in the lineup and Miller back coaching, Arizona has its major pieces for the stretch run as they try to win the Pac-12.
