Sean Miller was the subject of testimony in the federal bribery trial, but was never directly implicated.

Robbins was asked about his level of concern with an ongoing NCAA investigation and the possibility of sanctions against the basketball program.

"I have no idea," Robbins said. "That's up to the NCAA. We'll just cooperate with them and see what they have to say in the end."
