TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona basketball gets it's first big test Thursday night when they face St. John's at Madison Square Garden in the continuation of the 2K Sports Classic.

It'll be a homecoming for Kevin Parrom who returned the floor in the 'Cats win over Ball State Sunday.

Parrom was shot while visiting New York City in September.  His presence on this team is so important for a number of reason, but why is he so important.

"Why is that? well he can really shoot the ball.  He's one player on the team that we know from his past can score 20 points in a game.  To me he's one of our most physical players he rebounds.  Defensively as junior he's experience he can guard a number of players," said Coach Sean Miller.
