Houston Cougars have dealt another blow as freshman Jojo Tugler faces a season-ending setback. The 6-foot-7 forward, known for his defensive prowess, suffered a broken bone in his right foot. Houston’s head coach, Kelvin Sampson, confirmed that Tugler will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery on Thursday.

“That’s a big hit. Everyone will try to figure out what it means for us,” Sampson said. “But that’s a human being with a broken foot, who’s invested his entire life into this season.” Sampson said.

Who can replace Jojo Tugler?

The 6’7″ freshman forward for the Houston Cougars, brings a unique blend of energy and determination to the court. Tugler will be hard to replace but still, few names come to mind as a potential replacement for the forward. Cedric Lath, Ja’Vier Francis, and J’Wan Roberts are some of the players Samson can rely on as a replacement for Jojo Tugler.

This injury compounds the Cougars’ woes, adding to their list of sidelined players. Earlier this season, sophomore wing Terrance Arceneaux suffered a torn Achilles tendon, while reserve guard Ramon Walker tore his meniscus in practice. Despite these setbacks, Houston remains a formidable force, securing 52 out of 62 first-place votes in the AP Top 25 rankings.
