Creighton guard Maurice Watson Jr. faced a scary moment in today's game against Xavier. Watson went down twice, holding his knee in the first half of this afternoon's game.
After the first incident, Watson came back into the game. The second incident seemed to be non-contact and Watson had to be carried off the court by his teammates. According to Fox 19's Joe Danneman, Watson told Head Coach Greg McDermott that he heard it pop.
