TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Wildcats star guard Allonzo Trier was cleared by the NCAA and played against Stanford Thursday, March 1.

The school made the announcement on Twitter at 6 p.m., just hours after the school said embattled head coach Sean Miller would remain with the team.

Trier scored 18 points as the Wildcats beat Stanford 75-67 to claim at least a share of the Pac-12 title.

Trier was declared ineligible Feb. 22 and UA said the decision was related to the banned substance Trier tested positive for last year.

Trier missed half of last season after testing positive for the substance.

Trier has said he did not intentionally take the drug and the NCAA agreed, letting him back on the team once it was out of his system.

UA said it will appeal the decision and is hopeful Trier will regain his eligibility soon.

Trier is averaging 19.6 points and 3.2 rebounds per game this season.
