Arizona junior Kevin Parrom was shot in the leg this weekend in New York during a reported dispute over a woman.

"Kevin Parrom went home this weekend to visit his mother, who is in the hospital," Arizona athletic director Greg Byrne said via a statement released late Sunday. "While in New York City, he was the victim of a shooting. Rest assured, Kevin’s well being is our primary concern."

Arizona coach Sean Miller said he expects Parrom, a New York native, back in Tucson this week.

"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," Miller said. "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."

Parrom averaged 7.6 points and 3.4 rebounds last season.

I think the top of the conference is up for grabs between AZ, UW, and probably one or two other schools. Losing Derrick Williams is HUGE for AZ...nobody will replace what he provided for them this year. They still have a ton of talent, but it's going to be a rougher ride to the top.

If you guys have never read StevePhoenix's posts before, this is nothing new. The guy is a moron and barely ever thinks things through before he posts. He's exactly what is wrong with CBS message boards. Anyways, Arizona is pretty stacked so this shouldn't hurt them. They will probably win the Pac 12 this year with UW coming in second. That hurts to say especially since I can't stand Arizona.

We don't know many details, so to cast judgment either way seems premature. 

Good points that Parrom is labeled as the VICTIM here. We have no idea how he got into this confrontation. Wouldn't you all feel like idiots if it turned out he was visiting his Mom in a hospital and some low-life came into the hospital and shot him? I doubt that's the case, but I have no idea...I wasn't there.

On the other side, as a Cats fan, I think we all knew Parrom was a bit thuggish, which is personally one of the reasons I liked him on this team. AZ rarely has an enforcer, get-in-your-face, thug type dude on the team and I welcomed it. This was the first guy on the team that wasn't going to put up with a cheap shot. 

So who really knows? The one thing I know is I hope Parrom is back soon and gets on the court and continues to improve his game to help us in yet another great run in the tournament.

StevePhoenix has shown a new low, even for message board lowlifes.  What kind of a person gets on a message board and criticizes a young person for being the victim of a shooting ?? what kind of a coward hides behind a pseudonym and does that?  Who is StevePHoenix. Wow, a kid that is probably 19-21 gets shot, and this idiot is calling him "totally dumb" when the kid went home to visit his sick mother.  Wow, I wish I could get my hands on this guy and throttle him.  He is the lowest scum that society has to offer.

This clown named Phoenix is the perfect example of how a lot of Americans react. They don't think, and are quick to hold someone at fault without even trying to get the facts. Until people like this try to pull their heads out of their behinds, then we as a country will continue to spin totally out of control.
