TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona basketball player Kevin Parrom is back on campus in Tucson after being wounded in a shooting while visiting family in New York City.

Coach Sean Miller issued a statement saying Parrom, a 6-foot-6 junior swingman, returned Monday night. He is to return to classes and begin rehabilitation this week.

Parrom received gunshot wounds to his right knee and left hand in what police called a dispute at a residence in the Bronx about 1 a.m. on Saturday.

Miller says the university will provide "comprehensive support" to Parrom. The coach added that, "Kevin, first and foremost, is fortunate to be alive."
