What's the Impact of the FBI Investigation on Arizona Basketball’s Legacy?

The team wrapped up its regular season last week amid dramatic ups and downs over reporting on the probe.

The University of Arizona Athletics Department made national headlines last week, with much of the focus on men's basketball coach Sean Miller and fallout from an ESPN report about his alleged use of illicit recruiting methods. Miller on Thursday denied and condemned the media's response to the allegations and returned to coach the team against Stanford that night. He also received support from UA President Robert Robbins.

Steve Rivera has authored multiple books about UA men's basketball and has covered the team for more than 20 years. He joined host Lorraine Rivera to discuss the impact the media storm over ESPN's report has had on the program's reputation.
