The Badger Men’s Basketball home opener against Eastern Illinois Friday night will include a special tribute before tip-off.

They are asking fans to be in their seats by 6:45 p.m. for recognizing the family of assistant coach Howard Moore

On May 25, Moore and his family were involved in a crash in Michigan that claimed the lives of Moore’s wife Jen, and 9-year-old daughter, Jaidyn. His son, Jerell, survived with minor injuries. Moore had severe burns and a month later had a heart attack that has left him facing a long and challenging recovery.

Throughout the basketball season, the team will be honoring the Moore family with a simple motto: Do Moore. Be Moore. 4 Moore.

The number four represents the four members of the family.

Game uniforms will feature a “4Moore” patch, which will include the names of Jen and Jaidyn.

An assistance fund was established with the name, “The Howard Moore Family Fund.” People can text the word, “MOORE” to donate.

Joining us tomorrow night at the Kohl Center for our home opener? Be in your seats by 6:45 p.m. for a recognition of the family of assistant coach Howard Moore.
