On December 11, 2018, Shiloh Emanuel and Joshua Nkem-Ajoku were both injured during the game at Big Bear. Both were injured during the third period of the game. Emanuel suffered an ankle injury, while Nkem-Ajoku suffered a knee injury. Their injuries were substantial and rendered them from playing for the rest of the game. After these injuries, the third quarter ended with the UP Jags trailing. In the fourth quarter, Coach Augustus put in the Junior Varsity basketball team to deal with his two Varsity players being injured. The Jags lost 80-42.

Emanuel explained his injury, stating, “ Before the game I was already injured because I had a hip pointer which is basically when you bruise your bone. [I felt] sluggish the whole game. I think somewhere close to the second or third quarter I was going up for a 3-pointer and the opponent went under me, so I couldn’t land in a safe position for my ankle. I ended up having to sit out the rest of the game because I couldn’t put a lot of pressure on that ankle. When I got home I was just hopping around, but when I woke up the next morning I couldn’t walk on it. I had to get crutches when I came to school. The next game I was able to move around and do a light jog on it, but I wasn’t anywhere close to being 100%, so I just chose not to risk it and watched the game  from the bench.”
