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.
