The University of Michigan-Dearborn men’s basketball team suffered a “home” loss on the recruiting trail Friday when Moe Zahr signed with Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference rival Madonna.
Zahr, a standout at Fordson (Dearborn, Mich.), held a UM-Dearborn offer, per The D Zone.
Madonna head coach Noel Emenhiser announced the signing on his Twitter page.

A deadly scorer, Zahr averaged 27.9 points last season and broke Fordson’s single-game and single-season points records.
According to Branden Hunter of MichiganPreps.com, he received interest from three teams, including NAIA Division-II national champion Cornerstone.
UM-Dearborn returns six guards this season and must find a way to replace senior Jamiel Strickland.
