Alexis Wangmene suffered a serious arm injury after coming down awkwardly during Texas' matchup with Kansas.
It wouldn't be surprising in the least if x-rays reveal Texas forward Alexis Wangmene suffered a broken arm. Wangmene went down hard early in the second half in somewhat of a freak collision. After a teammate tried to take a charge under the hoop, Wangmene was caught up in the mess while jumping to block a shot.
With Wangmene in the air, a falling teammate accidentally undercut him, causing him to come down awkwardly. He put his hands down to brace himself while falling, and his arm took on the weight of his whole body. It was gruesome and trainers rushed him to the locker room.
Here's two looks at Wangmene's fall. WARNING: The photo and following GIF are both graphic.
The team fears Wangmene broke his arm or wrist, and judging by the photo that's a pretty legitimate fear. The official word from Texas is that Wangmene's return is doubtful due to what's been generously dubbed an injured wrist.
