Justin Moore suffers serious leg injury at end of Villanova win

Justin Moore on the floor

Justin Moore went down with a serious-looking leg injury at the end of Villanova’s win in the NCAA Tournament on Saturday.

The Wildcats beat the Houston Cougars 50-44 to win the South Region and advance to the Final Four in the NCAA Tournament. But the team could hardly celebrate given Moore’s condition.

Moore was trying to drive in the final minute of the game, but his right leg gave up, leading him to lose the ball.

Many viewers noted the vibration in the lower part of Moore’s right calf. Such a vibration is typically consistent with a torn Achilles tendon, though no diagnosis was made regarding Moore’s injury at the time of this article being published.

Villanova couldn’t even celebrate because their players were too concerned about Moore’s status.

Moore had 8 points on 2/10 shooting in the game. The junior guard is averaging 15.0 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game this season.
