Arizona's Parrom latest adversity: done for year

The past six months have not been kind to Kevin Parrom. 

The latest bout of adversity for the Arizona junior wing came last night, when the school announced he'll miss the rest of the season after suffering a broken bone is his right foot. 

Parrom was shot in the same leg back in September back home in New York and there was some thought that he would miss the entire season. However, he was even more motivated to return to the court after his mother lost her fight with cancer in October. 

Parrom returned after sitting out the first two games of the season, but he never looked like the player Sean Miller envisioned prior to the injury. He averaged just 4.9 points and 2.9 rebounds in 15.6 minutes per game, down from 7.6 points and 3.4 boards a year ago, prior to suffering the injury late in the first half of Arizona's 69-67 home loss against Washington. 

The school also said that the most recent injury is unrelated to the one suffered back in September. 

Parrom took to twitter after the game and posted the following: 

"I love all u guys thanks 4 all of ya support. Ill be ok. Just like mommy said Just another bump on the road. Ill be back stronger than ever! Just wanna let all the fans know that this season isnt over and we gonna be just fine. Just gotta keep workin harder and learn how to win!  Zona zoo there is no time to feel sorry for me or my injury. I really appreciate all the love and support but we still got to win the pac12!"
