    Exclamation Sister, Cousin of Willie Green Killed in Car Accident

    Sister, Cousin of Willie Green Killed in Car Accident - At The Hive

    There are days when we are abruptly reminded that basketball is just a game and that the players we cheer for, talk about, and scream at are more than pixels on our screens and statistics on the back of their cards. Today is one of those days.

    Last night's game in Detroit was a homecoming for Green, who attended Thomas Cooley High School on the northwest side of Detroit and played college basketball at the University of Detroit Mercy. The Detroit Free Press reports that a number of Green's family members attended the game:

    Tamara Lynette Green, 30, and her cousin, Gary Benjamin Green, 27, who was driving, died after a number of Green family members attended the game at the Palace of Auburn Hills, the player's father, Willie Green Sr., said today.

    "I feel pretty hurt," Green Sr. said this morning. "But Iím going to take solace in the same things we tell other folks going through other things like this: If God permits something like that to happen, say ĎAmení and move on. Thatís what I will use to cope."
    Green was already in Indiana when he heard the news; as of this morning, he has traveled back to Detroit to be with his family.

    Our condolences go out to Willie and his family.

    Horrible news, I didn't find out until the pre-game moment of silence. Butler fans will remember that Ben Green was a solid player at UDM. I feel so bad for Willie, sucks that bad things happen to good people.
