Cardinals guard Kevin Ware then contested a Duke shot, landed awkwardly and suffered one of the worst-looking injuries you’ll ever see in a college basketball game with about six minutes remaining in the first half.
It’s too graphic to show a replay here, but the reaction on Twitter gives you a sense of the severity of the situation. Ware was taken off the court on a stretcher after play was stopped for about 10 minutes. He scored 11 points in Louisville’s Sweet 16 win over Oregon on Friday.
Louisville officials told CBS that Ware has been diagnosed with a broken leg. He has been taken to a local hospital in Indianapolis.
Never seen a scene like this in a basketball game. Russ Smith was doubled over crying. Harrell was on his knees, shaking.
