Wildcats to be visited by Xavier guard Lyons

What they're missing is a point guard, though it's possible that won't be an issue much longer.
According to Bruce Pascoe of the Arizona Daily Star, Xavier transfer Mark Lyons is planning on visiting Arizona this weekend.
Lyons, who has already visited Kentucky and is planning on taking a trip to Kansas, will be graduating in the next few weeks and be eligible to play beginning this fall.
His trip to Tucson will include some familiar faces, including Arizona head coach Sean Miller.
Sean Miller recruited Lyons to Xavier in 2008, and Lyons also knows assistant coach Book Richardson and remains close to UA wing Kevin Parrom, whom Lyons co-hosted on Parrom's official recruiting visit in 2008 (Parrom signed with Xavier before following Miller to UA in the spring of 2009).
Lyons, the report says, added that he is close with Arizona guard Kevin Parrom, who co-hosted Parrom's official recruiting visit to Xavier in 2008 before signing with Arizona.
Lyons averaged 15.5 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game for the Musketeers last year while spending most of the season playing shooting guard.
He's hoping to play the point in his final season in an effort to improve his NBA draft stock, which could make Arizona the perfect place for him.
