The mother of Arizona Wildcats basketball player Kevin Parrom has died after fighting cancer for more than two years.

Parrom wrote this on his Twitter page Sunday night: "I Love You Momma! You Dont Have To Deal With No More Pain And Now You Can Watch Ya Baby Boy Make You Proud From Up Above. Love You Ma ! RIP"

He's also lost his grandmother. And he's been shot, which could affect whether he plays any sort of basketball with the Wildcats this season. Other than that, everything's been going splendid.

I think we've found someone we can all root for this year in college basketball, don't you think?
