Links: React and moving on from the Mike Stoops firing and an awesome read on Kevin Parrom's shooting

  • Let's start off with the positives from this week. Arizona Wildcats forward Kevin Parrom is in good spirits and on the mend following his shooting in the Bronx earlier this month, where two men entered his apartment and shot the Wildcat in the leg. Parrom opened up to Bruce Pascoe of the Arizona Daily Star to discuss his recovery from the shooting to his leg. The best quote from that story is what head coach Sean Miller said about the situation:

"The biggest thing is he's not in the middle of Manhattan at a club," Miller said. "He's not out at 3 in the morning, drunk. He doesn't have a gun. Another person has a gun. He's sitting on the couch, in the very place he grew up, with a friend."
