Justin Moore injury: Villanova G hurt in Elite Eight win


Villanova is headed to its third Final Four since 2016, but the program could be making the trip to New Orleans without one of its star players.

Junior guard Justin Moore suffered a potentially serious lower leg injury in the closing moments of Saturday’s 50–44 win over Houston in the Elite Eight. Moments after the final whistle, a visibly distraught Moore was consoled by teammates as the celebration commenced.

Moore did not participate in the rest of the postgame ceremony and was spotted heading into the locker room with crutches after hugging coach Jay Wright, according to USA Today’s Dan Wolken.
