Even Joe Theismann, who is best known for a gruesome injury of his own, felt bad for Ware after this one.
Watching Duke/ Louisville my heart goes out to Kevin Ware.— Joe Theismann (@Theismann7) March 31, 2013
If you can stand to watch, here's video of the play. Warning: It's truly gruesome, and not for the faint of heart.
After the injury, several Louisville players were seen sobbing on the court, and coach Rick Pitino also had tears in his eyes. This is definitely the most gruesome injury we've seen in this year's tournament by far.
Ware was taken to a nearby hospital and will have surgery tonight.
This was an extremely difficult injury to see, and it's always devastating to see a player go down like that. Best wishes to Kevin Ware, and here's hoping that he recovers fully and quickly from this injury.
