Boo Buie (born: December 7, 1999) is a rising basketball player famous as the basketball guard for Northwestern Wildcats of the Big Ten Conference.

Further, the 6 feet 2 inches tall sportsman went to Troy High School at first but then moved to Gould Academy in Bethel, Maine after his second year of high school.

At Gould, he played basketball really well, averaging 27 points, six rebounds, five assists, and three steals per game in his first season.

Buie decided to play college basketball for Northwestern instead of other schools like St. Bonaventure, UMass, Boston University, and Siena.

Holding First-team All-Big Ten (2023) title under his belt, Boo currently plays for Northwestern, which he joined in 2019.

Maintaining a low-key profile, his father, Dan remains away from the media limelight and public appearances. He might be busy with some fruitful job or business ventures these days. 

Previously, he worked three works at a time to support his family. He was also studying Criminal Justice as per the reports.

Furthermore, the celebrity father seems to be an American citizen with an African-American ethnic background. However, more data on Dan is yet to be out. 

Though Boo shares a close bond with his father, he barely talks about him on any platform. 

Who Is Bo Buie’s Mother, Denise Murphy?

Talking about Boo’s mother, Denise Murphy is a white American originally from Rutherford, Pennsylvania. She now lives with her family in Harrisburg.

The celebrity mother married Mr. Battle as her first husband and they welcomed three kids together. Later, she married Dan Buie as her second husband and the pair welcomed six kids together.

As per the reports, Dan and Denise took care of all the Battle-Buie kids after their marriage in the mid-1990s.

Further, Denise uses her maiden name, Murphy, and sometimes her previous name, Battle.

As a housewife, she looked after the kids at home. In September 2022, she said on Facebook that Murphy had to quit her job because taking care of nine kids was too much.

In addition, the celebrity mom enjoys traveling and going to the beach. She went to Israel in 2016 and Camelback Mountain in Arizona in June 2018.

Besides taking care of things at home, Boo’s mom goes to her kids’ important sports events and shares her thoughts about their career choices, like she did in 2010.

In 2010, Hollidaysburg Area High School coach Mick Pentoney said Penn State influenced Taran’s move to State College. Murphy explained that Taran moved to be closer to his grandparents and aunts, so it was like coming back home.
