Texas Tech has announced that freshman G/F Khavon Moore will not play anymore this season and will seek a medical hardship. Coach Chris Beard said this weekend that Moore would still be eligible for a redshirt this season.
Update on #TexasTech’s Khavon Moore:— Chris Level (@ChrisLevel) February 11, 2019
“The Texas Tech men’s basketball program has announced that freshman Khavon Moore will not play in any remaining games this season and will seek a medical hardship.”
Moore has only played two minutes this season in the loss to Iowa State. He didn’t travel with the team this weekend after a tweet that has since been deleted stated his frustration with not playing in last Monday’s blowout win over the West Virginia Mountaineers.

Moore was the highest rated prospect to ever sign with the school until this season when Jahmius Ramsey signed with the school last fall. He broke his leg in the latter half of his senior season in high school and started this season still rehabbing that injury. Coach Beard indicated earlier in the season that there was a chance Moore could play this season.
I believe this will be seen as a good move in the future. What Moore needs is a solid offseason to get in the flow of workouts and practices. When that happens this summer, I believe that Moore will be starting on next year’s team alongside other great young talent such as Jahmius Ramsey and Kevin McCullar.
What do you all think of this move by the program? Let us know in the comment section below!
