Kevin Ware is a native of Atlanta, and Louisville’s 2013 Final Four berth was supposed to be his homecoming. Unfortunately, he suffered a compound fracture against Duke in the Elite Eight, forcing him into surgery and out of any basketball in the Georgia Dome.

That being said, it wasn’t like Kevin Ware was going to stay home and miss a chance to soak in the Cardinals’ second-consecutive Final Four.

And his teammates were not going to leave him out of it, either.

No, Ware did not have a locker, but he did have a role. Thus, the team put his name over the wheelchair he will be using while watching the game from the sidelines with his teammates.
