Ex-Hoosier suffers stroke in Germany

Former Indiana University basketball player A.J. Moye suffered a

stroke after colliding head-on with a teammate in Germany, the

Indianapolis Star reported Thursday.

Moye, who currently plays for Deutsche Bank Skyliners in

Frankfurt, is expected to make a full recovery after the freak

incident.

The former Hoosiers guard from Atlanta, Georgia crashed into

a teammate during practice Monday, but “abnormal

behavior” Tuesday led to him being taken to the hospital for

tests.

“He is showing no long-term effects,”

Moye’s agent, Aaron Smith, said Thursday. “He has no

paralysis. His speech is fine. His family is with him now. It looks

like he’ll have a full recovery.

“He did suffer a stroke. It was precipitated by a

collision in practice. A.J. had a couple of concussions at IU and

he’s had a couple since he’s been a pro. They are doing

a lot of tests to be sure of exactly what happened.”

Moye was a member of Indiana’s 2002 Final Four team.

The Hoosiers lost in the National Championship game to

Maryland.
