The family of Wisconsin basketball assistant coach Howard Moore suffered an unspeakable tragedy earlier this year, when the coach and his family were hit in their car by a drunk driver.
Moore’s wife Jennifer and daughter Jaidyn, as well as the driver in the other car, were killed in the crash. Moore was severely burned and fell into a coma, and has since had to step away from coaching after suffering a heart attack during his recovery. Moore’s son Jerrell was also in the car, but escaped with minor injuries.
As the Moore family tries to heal, the Wisconsin basketball program invited Jerrell to the team’s home opener at the Kohl Center on Friday.
