NCAA Basketball: Green Bay at Wisconsin Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

Earlier this week, some unfortunate news broke about Wisconsin Badgers assistant coach Howard Moore. He apparently underwent some complications from the motor vehicle accident he was involved in earlier this calendar year and went into cardiac arrest.

Here’s what the university release stated:

University of Wisconsin men’s basketball assistant coach Howard Moore recently experienced a medical issue at his Madison area home that required ambulatory transportation to a local hospital. During the transportation to the hospital, Howard underwent cardiac arrest and has been receiving care by the doctors, nurses and staff at the hospital.

Howard will now be moving to a long-term care and rehabilitation facility to continue the focus on his recovery and health. He will not coach during the upcoming 2019-20 season.

The Moore Family greatly appreciates the outpouring of love and support from the greater Madison and Chicago communities, the Badgers and Big Ten families and all whose lives Howard and his family have touched. Please continue to keep Howard and his son, Jerell, in your prayers.

Multiple family members of Moore passed away as a result of the motor vehicle accident. Everyone at BTPowerhouse certainly will be hoping and praying for a smooth recovery for Moore and his family. The situation is an immensely sad one.
