Current Event Cat - Ware

Current Event Cat of the Day:

Louisville defeated Duke 85-63 and will go on to the Final Four but the real highlight (or lowlight?) of the game was Kevin Ware’s agonizing leg injury. The Louisville player crashed to the ground with his lower-right leg folding under him as he defended a three-point shot with six minutes and 33 seconds left in the first half of the game. The break was so gruesome that CBS stopped showing replays shortly after the fall.

Coach Rick Pitino had this to say about the incident:

“The bone’s 6 inches out of his leg and all he’s yelling is, `Win the game, win the game! I’ve not seen that in my life. … Pretty special young man.”

One game official admitted to several reporters that a bone snapped in Ware’s leg. Two doctors also speculated Ware might have had stress fractures that predisposed him to such a break. No word on if he’ll ever play basketball again. Ouch.
