The basketball community mourns the sudden passing of Brandon Hunter, a former player for the Boston Celtics and Orlando Magic.
He was 42.
The news was confirmed on Tuesday by Ohio men’s basketball coach Jeff Boals, who paid tribute to Hunter, calling him a “Bobcat Great” on social media.
As fans and friends pay tribute to the late Brandon Hunter, we take a look at details of his wife and children.
Who is Brandon Hunter wife?
The name of Brandon Hunter’s wife is Mary Hunter.
Hunter and his wife, Mary, were blessed with two children: Andrew and Tristan Hunter.
Mary prefers to live a very low profile life away from social media.
Her date of birth and other basic information about her is not available on social media.
What we know is that she and her late husband first met at Ohio University.
She does attend events with Brandon but has been able to shield herself away from the usual attention celebrities get, which is why not much is known about her.
Her relationship with Brandon has been in excess of over a decade.
It appears she was already a private person before marrying Brandon and didn’t want to change that, hence little information about her.
Who was Brandon Hunter?
Brandon Hunter, who was a local star from his high school days in Cincinnati, rose to prominence as a forward for the Cincinnati Bobcats.
He earned three All-MAC conference first-team selections and led the NCAA in rebounding during his senior year.
Such achievements paved the way for him to be chosen as the 56th overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft.
Hunter’s stint in the NBA was relatively short, playing 67 games over two seasons.
His NBA highlight was notably scoring a career-high 17 points against the Milwaukee Bucks in 2004.
His passion for the sport saw him extending his playing career internationally. Between 2006 to 2013, Hunter became a recognizable figure in basketball arenas across Greece, Italy, Puerto Rico, and other countries.
After hanging up his sneakers, Hunter ventured into coaching, along with other avenues.
