FINAL 4 LINES: NOVA 4-DOG TO KANSAS, DUKE 4-FAVE OVER UNC !

By Skip Charles in Vegas

Tonight’s national semifinals were massively affected by Justin Moore’s injury in the final minute of Villanova’s 50-44 win against Houston in the South Regional final.

Moore suffered an Achilles injury and was ruled out the day after the game with Wildcats coach Jay Wright noting the significance in losing a team captain, the second-leading scorer and “one of the best rebounding guards” in his time at Villanova.

Villanova already had a thin rotation of about six players, so even losing one is going to mean more responsibility for players who haven’t been in these spots before.

Look for Chris Arcidiacano and possibly Bryan Antoine to be X-factors with more minutes, but Wright also had to adjust the many ways Moore plays into out-of-bounds situations, press-break and other sets that will be key to getting past a strong Kansas side.
