Louisville's Ware recovering after gruesome injury
INDIANAPOLIS - Louisville guard Kevin Ware had successful surgery on his broken right leg last night and is recovering from that horrific injury he suffered in yesterday's NCAA tournament game with Duke.
The accident happened in the first half when he landed awkwardly after trying a three-point shot.
Cardinals' coach Rick Pitino took the regional championship trophy to Ware's hospital room last night and stayed with the young man.
Pitino and Ware's teammates are now waiting to find out if the sophomore can travel with the team to Atlanta for the Final Four.
