Boo Buie dad Dan Buie is a former basketball player who won a district championship in 1991. Dan is from Harrisburg Pennsylvania.

The combo guard of the Northwestern Wildcats team hails from an athletic background. His father and siblings have been thoroughly involved in sports, mainly basketball.

Boo's real name is Daniel Richard Buie. His recent uprising in the NCAA Division has garnered much attention toward his clan.

Meanwhile, the Buie basketball family has been a part of basketball fame even before due to Boo's father.

Likewise, Boo's jersey number of #0 has also added much to his fame, considered to be a top NBA prospect in the future.

Dan Buie Played For Washburn University

Boo Buie was born to his dad Dan Buie on December 7, 1999, in Albany, New York. Dan stood at 6 foot-8 inches and played as a forward.

He had led his high school team to a district championship in 1991, making him a local celebrity. Major unis, including Kentucky, Duke, and Cincinnati, were in line to recruit him though he chose the other way.

Dan was later detained from the Harrisburg International Airport in October 1993 for being an unlicensed driver in a hit-and-run case and possessing an unregistered firearm.

The New York Times reported that Dan grew up as a child of separated and impoverished parents. Their absence made him choose a way of substance and violence, and he later became a supplier during his school days.

Despite the shortcomings in life, Dan stood up with the help of Terry and Lee Resnick. They helped him get admitted at Washburn and play basketball for the team.

Buie had failed to join a university as a student-athlete right after graduation as he fell short in academic points.

After his time at Washburn, he started a family with his wife, Denise Murphy. 

Buie Mother Denise Has Been Through Thick and Thin

Boo Buie mom Denise Murphy is a native of Rutherford, Pennsylvania and currently lives in Harrisburg with her children.

Denise was previously married and had three children with her former husband, Mr. Battle. Boo's father, Dan, is her second spouse, with whom she had six kids. 

She and Dan brought up the Battle-Buie children together after marriage in the mid-1990s.

Denise goes by her maiden name, Murphy, and her previous last name, Battle. 

Mrs. Buie looked after the children at home while Dan worked three jobs during his Washburn venture. Dan was majoring in Criminal Justice as well.

She is a big fan of traveling and going to the beaches. She went to Israel in 2016 and Camelback mountain in Arizona in June 2018. 

Besides her homely duties, she attends her kids' big sports days. Moreover, she is vocal about her opinion on her child's career choices, like she did in 2010.

Hollidaysburg Area High School coach Mick Pentoney had accused Penn State of influencing Taran to move to State College that year.

Murphy had defended that the move was a homecoming decision since Taran could meet his grandparents and aunties.
