Kevin Ware is a 6-foot-2, 175-pound sophomore on the Louisville Cardinals. On Sunday, he and his teammates took on the Duke Blue Devils, but the game, being played at a breakneck pace throughout, had to be stopped with 6:33 left in the first half.

At that point, Ware had gone up to try to block a Duke shot. He landed with all of his weight on his right leg and it literally snapped.

It was a horrific injury, and several of Ware’s teammates and head coach Rick Pitino were in tears after seeing what happened.

All of us here at Gamedayr are hoping for a safe recovery.
