This past season, Parham scored 21.4 points per game, which led the Southern Conference. He also led VMI with 3.5 assists per game (sixth in the conference) while also averaging 3.4 rebounds per game.
In a 92-82 loss at Kentucky in November, he scored 35 points on 10-for-16 shooting from 3-point range. The 10 made 3-pointers were one shy of the record for a Wildcats opponent. His 35 points were the most given up in Rupp Arena by a visitor since January 2013. It was one of nine games in the season in which he scored 30 points or more.
“He made some crazy ones now,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said after the game.
No fewer than four of his 3-pointers were from at least three feet behind the arc, including one he took from the edge of the center-court logo with a hand in his face.
“We all dream of playing in big arenas like this,” Parham said after the game. “I’m just blessed to be able to have the opportunity, and my coach has the faith in me to shoot the ball and it’s a blessing.”
