The Villanova Wildcats took down the Houston Cougars in their Elite Eight showdown in the NCAA Tournament on Saturday, but it came with a price. Justin Moore suffered an injury late in the game and had to exit with what looked like a significant issue.

With just a minute left in the game, Moore was trying to drive to the basket when his right leg appeared to pop. He fell to the floor in pain and had to be helped off the court since he couldn't put any weight on it.

Here's the replay of the moment when Moore sustained his injury:

While there is still no official diagnosis on the injury, many people fear that it could be an Achilles tear given how similar it is to previous instances of NBA players sustaining the injury the same way as Justin Moore.

Hopefully, though, the injury is less serious. Moore is a crucial part of the Villanova Wildcats, and without him, the team wouldn't even be able to contend in the NCAA Tournament. In the 2021-22 season, he averaged 15.0 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.0 steal per game.

Before he exit Saturday's 55-44 Elite Eight win, he scored eight points and had two rebounds.

In a bit of good news for Villanova fans, Justin Moore was spotted with his teammates after the victory. He was able to walk while wearing a boot, which is a good sign after the scenes from earlier.
