Mod edit: Click if you dare. Very gruesome.
[spoiler] [/spoiler] that had to hurt. Louisville guard Kevin Ware suffered a gruesome compound fracture in the first half of the Cardinals' Midwest regional final against Duke on Sunday.Kevin Ware looks to pass against Duke before the accident. Ware rushed out to challenge a 3-point shot by Duke's Tyler Thornton and appeared to land awkwardly. When laying on the court, the tibia bone in his right leg appeared to be protruding from the skin. The game was stopped for a prolonged period of time and a pall fell over Lucas Oil Stadium. Louisville's players reacted with anguish. Chane Behanan fell to the floor sobbing. Russ Smith was crying heavily. Coach Rick Pitino was wiping tears from his face. Ware asked to speak to his teammates and Pitino called them over. Then he was taken off the court on a stretcher and sent by ambulance to Methodist Hospital, which is two miles from the stadium. Louisville associate athletic director Kenny Klein said Ware's pain is under control and he will likely have surgery tonight.
