TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Athletic Department says it has received word that Allonzo Trier tested negative for a performance-enhancing drug in his latest test and will be eligible to play when the No. 14 Wildcats face No. 4 UCLA in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The NCAA’s blessing has long been awaited as Trier sat out the entire season, able to practice and travel with the team but unable to play in games.

The school refused to say why Trier wasn’t playing until the player released a statement this week saying he had inadvertently taken a substance with a trace amount of PED in it. He said the NCAA would not allow him to play until his system was completely cleared of the drug.
