During games, Kevin Parrom hasn't been able to wear the pink rubber wristband for breast cancer that he normally wears, but he said he'll come up with a way to honor his mother, Lisa Williams, tonight. He would not reveal it before the game, however.

The New York Post's Lenn Robbins has some more detail about Parrom's story, including how he rushed to the hospital when his mother stopped breathing during a trip home to identify the suspect, and that his older brother is incarcerated for narcotics possession.

ESPN's Dana O'Neil details the entire story on what Parrom has been through.

Look for Josiah Turner to play tonight, though he will probably not start. Sean Miller indicated earlier this week that his DNP against Ball State -- which appeared to effectively be a suspension -- would not continue tonight if Turner was taking care of business.
