Late in the first half of today's Elite Eight game between Louisville and Duke, Cardinals guard Kevin Ware suffered a horrific leg injury that left players, fans and viewers in shock. The school has already announced that his leg is broken, and he has been rushed to the hospital for what we assume will be emergency surgery.
Louisville's players (and Cardinals coach Rick Pitino) couldn't hold back their tears after the incident. It was a very emotional scene.
The below video is of the reaction by the Louisville players. We will not be running footage of the injury itself.
You can hear Pitino tell his team (around the 48-second mark) that Ware wants to talk to them before he goes off on the stretcher.
Our prayers go out to Kevin.
