Justin Moore makes season debut for Villanova after Achilles injury
By ADAM ZAGORIA
It has largely been a disappointing season for Villanova under first-year coach Kyle Neptune, but the Wildcats got a boost Sunday when Justin Moore made his season debut.
The senior guard played 31 minutes in Villanova’s 70-65 home loss to No. 23 Providence, notching 5 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists.
Villanova dropped to 10-11, 4-6 in the Big East.
Moore suffered a tear in his right Achilles tendon in the final minutes of Villanova’s 50-44 victory over Houston in the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight. The Wildcats ended up losing to eventual national champion Kansas in the Final Four.
‘Whenever I’m ready is whenI’ll step out ‘ and play.
