Kevin Parrom In Stable Condition After Being Shot On Saturday Morning

Posted by nvr1983 on September 25th, 2011

According to various reports, Arizona junior Kevin Parrom was shot in the right leg early on Saturday morning during a trip home to New York City. Parrom was reportedly going home to spend time with his mother to support her for an undisclosed medical condition. While Parrom has not issued a statement yet, sources are reporting that the shooting was related to an argument over a woman who was visiting Parrom. In addition, Parrom’s AAU coach has reported that Parrom is doing well and is already walking. Arizona coach Sean Miller issued the following statement: “I have been in contact with Kevin and his family throughout the weekend and look forward to his return to Tucson and being back in class this week. Our focus is on Kevin’s health right now. Once we have more information, we’ll be able to address his potential return to team activities.”

Even with a loaded incoming freshman class Parrom should have an opportunity to build on a solid sophomore season where he averaged 7.6 PPG and 3.4 RPG as he will get more time with the ball in his hands with the departure of Derrick Williams to the NBA basketball limbo. Like Miller, we wish Parrom the best of luck in his recovery and hope to see big things from him once he recovers.
