Louisville’s Ware Has Surgery After Breaking Leg in Tournament

University of Louisville guard Kevin Ware may be able to travel with his team to the Final Four after breaking his lower right leg during yesterday’s national men’s college basketball tournament win over Duke, an injury that left his coach and teammates in tears.

Ware, a sophomore guard, underwent about two hours of surgery last night to have the broken bone re-set, the wound closed and a rod inserted in his right tibia, the school said.
