How Parrom helps Zona
By Matt Giles
We wrote earlier about Arizona's make-up; specifically, that Arizona is a perimeter-oriented team, per John Gasaway, that doesn't make many of their perimeter attempts. Because of their dependence on threes, and their lack of shooting success, Arizona's chances to make April's first weekend might be significantly diminished.
However, it is worth noting that Kevin Parrom is one of the few Wildcats to shine from deep this season, and if he continues to pose as a perimeter threat, the senior could still carry Arizona far into March. In a recent Sports Illustrated profile of the wing, Parrom indicated that he knew even with a top 10 incoming recruiting class, Arizona needed perimeter options and spent this past offseason refining his jump shot. He is converting 39 percent of his attempts, which is the second-highest percentage in his UA career (he made over 40 percent as a sophomore, but did take only 12 more threes so there is a chance Parrom can surpass that rate).
