Arizona swingman Parrom lost for season with broken foot wire reports

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona swingman Kevin Parrom suffered a broken right foot during the first half of Saturday's 69-67 loss against Washington and is lost for the season.

The 6-foot-6 Parrom, a junior from New York City, will require surgery.

It is the latest tough break for Parrom, who had seven points in 10 minutes before his injury.

His grandmother died last summer. In September, he was shot in the right leg and left hand while visiting a friend in New York. On Oct. 16, his mother, Lisa Williams, lost her battle with breast cancer.

Parrom returned to the Wildcats in mid-November and averaged 4.9 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game in 20 appearances, with one start, this season.

Saturday's injury is unrelated to any previous ailment, the school indicated.
