The numbers don't necessarily jump out from Sunday's boxscore, but Kevin Parrom's 18 minutes of action were certainly meaningful ones as he participated in game action for the first time since suffering a gunshot wound to his right leg on Sept. 23 while visiting family in New York City.
It was a typical game for the 6-foot-6 junior forward from the Bronx, N.Y., as he tallied six points, four rebounds and two assists in his first appearance of the season, including a key trey midway through the second half.
With Parrom's help, Arizona erased an 11-point second half deficit to defeat Ball State, 73-63. The 16th-ranked Wildcats are 3-0 on the season and head to New York City this week for the finals of the 2K Sports Classic benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer at Madison Square Garden beginning Thursday, Nov. 17.
