Wisconsin men’s basketball assistant coach Howard Moore is recovering from a car accident that occurred early Saturday that killed both his wife, and his daughter, according to ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg.

According to an official statement released by the school on Sunday, Moore’s wife, Jennifer, and daughter, Jaidyn, were both killed in the collision, which took place on State Route 14 around 2:00 AM on Saturday near Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Michigan State Police tweeted on Sunday that Jaidyn Moore, 9, died at the scene of the accident while Jennifer Moore, 46, was later taken off life support and died. The Moore’s family dog also died in the crash.

Howard Moore, 46, and his son Jerell, 13, both sustained injuries during the collision but are expected to recover.

According to police, Samantha Winchester, a 23-year-old woman from Ann Arbor, was driving west in the eastbound lanes of the highway when she struck the vehicle carrying Moore and his family.

Winchester died at the scene and toxicology reports are currently pending.

“There are no words to describe how devastated we are for Howard and his family,” Wisconsin coach Greg Gard said in a statement. “Our basketball program is an extremely close family and we are all grieving for the Moore and Barnes families. Howard is so much more than a colleague and coach. He and Jen and their children are dear friends to everyone they met. Their positivity and energy lift up those around them. We will miss Jen and Jaidyn dearly and we will put our arms around Howard and Jerell and the entire family, giving them love and support during this unspeakable time.”

“I’ve known Howard ever since he was a student-athlete at Wisconsin and gotten to know his wonderful family through the years,” athletic director Barry Alvarez said in a prepared statement. “He has always been an incredible representative of our athletic department and a positive influence on everyone around him. We are truly heart-broken for his family and will be doing everything possible to help him through this tragic time. Our prayers, love and support go out to the Moore and Barnes family.”

Josh LeBlanc

Georgetown Hoyas’ basketball players Josh LeBlanc and Galen Alexander received restraining orders sometime in November resulting from accusations of harassment and burglary, and freshman Myron Gardner was accused of “sexual harassment and assault,” according to one of the filings, according to ESPN’s Jeff Borzello.

ESPN obtained court records that were filed on November 5th by a Georgetown student, a restraining order against LeBlanc and Alexander, a request that was granted on November 20th after both players failed to appear

In response to an alleged burglary that I believe Joshua LeBlanc committed against me on September 16, 2019, Joshua threatened bodily harm against myself and my roommate,” the complaint read. “He continued to threaten me verbally and via text message in the following week.”

Later, on November 13th, the student’s roommate filed for a separate restraining order against Gardner, LeBlanc and Alexander, accusing Gardner of sexually harassing and assaulting her back on September 15th, and said that her home was burglarized by Gardner, LeBlanc and Alexander on September 16th.

She also noted she filed complaints with both the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington and Georgetown University Police Department.

“Georgetown University men’s basketball players James Akinjo and Josh LeBlanc will not be playing for the men’s basketball team effective immediately and will not be members of the team for the remainder of the season,” Georgetown said in an official statement.

“Georgetown takes student conduct issues very seriously and ensures that they are investigated thoroughly. While we are not able to comment on specific cases, we have processes for investigating and adjudicating alleged violations for our student code that are fair to both parties. We encourage any student who has a concern to be in contact with the Georgetown University Police Department or the Office of Student Conduct.”

Tennessee AD Phillip Fulmer Rules Out Return as Coach

Published

Phillip Fulmer

Tennessee Athletic Director Phillip Fulmer ruled out a potential return as the Vols head coach, saying he no desire to return to the sideline and that the “coaching chapter of my life is closed”, according to ESPN’s Chris Low.

Fulmer, 69, led the Vols to a national championship in 1998. Fulmer was fired at the end of the 2008 season following a second losing season in four years.

“We’ve got a good football coach, and I believe in Jeremy Pruitt totally,” Fulmer said. “I have no interest in coaching again and would rather spend that time being a grandfather and doing whatever I can as athletic director in helping Jeremy get this program where we all want it to be. Any talk of me coaching again is just a bunch of rumors.”

Fulmer’s only focus is being the AD at his alma mater.

“I’m way past that point in my life,” Fulmer said. “I love the job I have [as AD] and am committed to seeing this thing through.”

“Jeremy Pruitt is as bought in as anybody could possibly be bought in at the University of Tennessee,” Fulmer said.
