Kevin Parrom out for season, loss hits Wildcats hard

The Arizona Wildcats announced that forward Kevin Parrom will miss the rest of the season with a broken right foot, and the loss couldn't come at a worst time for a desperate UA team.

Per a release from the athletic department:

The injury occurred near the end of the first half and will require surgery. Parrom will miss the remainder of the season. This particular break is unrelated to any of his previous injuries.

The loss hurts more than any statistics can show. Arizona has been far and away a better team through the past three games, all of which Parrom had a significant role within. He scored seven points, had three rebounds and two assists in the first half of Saturday's 69-67 loss to the Washington Huskies.

And while he brings energy off the bench, along with a jolt in the tempo, the injury becomes more painful for a player who lost two family members and got shot in the leg in the past six months.

Furthermore, it's bad news concerning Parrom's basketball career. He's dealt with two separate foot injuries at his time with Sean Miller's Wildcats.
