In his fourth season as North Carolina Central head coach LeVelle Moton led his team into the NCAA tournament. However, he entered Friday’s game against No. 3 Iowa State in the East Region without his family in the stands, as his wife and daughter stayed behind to tend to his 1-year-old son who was hospitalized after suffering burns.
Following a 93-75 loss to the Cyclones, Moton returned home to his family, and shared this photo with his son on his Instagram page. Moton’s son will not suffer any long-term injuries.
Moton wrote in the caption:
“Made it home safely to see my son. This pic symbolizes a Father’s Love! Thx 4 ur Prayers!
The Eagles finished 28-6 (15-1 MEAC) on the season.
