  • Justin Moore returning to Villanova, using extra year of eligibility

    Despite missing out on the NCAA Tournament, Villanova eventually got some good news this March.

    On Friday, senior guard Justin Moore announced he will return to the Wildcats next season and use his extra year of eligibility.

    Moore averaged 13.5 points per game, 3.5 rebounds per game and 3.2 assists per game last year for Villanova months after a major injury.

    The guard tore his right Achilles tendon during the 2022 Elite Eight game against Houston. Villanova won the game, but lost in the Final Four to the eventual champion, Kansas.

    Moore’s return is massive for Villanova head coach Kyle Neptune. In the first year post Jay Wright, the Wildcats missed out on March Madness, was eliminated in the first round of the NIT and finished the season 17-17.

    Getting Moore back is big for a Villanova team that is likely to lose Big East Freshman of the Year Cam Whitmore to the 2023 NBA Draft.
