Video: Kevin Ware nails first shot in his return from injury

Last March, Kevin Ware broke his leg during the NCAA Tournament. It was one of the most horrific sports injuries captured on film. Now, less than eight months later, Ware is back on the court for the Louisville Cardinals.

In his first action since the injury, Ware hit a three pointer with his first shot. As you’ll see in the video below, the crowd at the KFC Yum! Center erupted when the shot went in. Ware played 10 minutes in the exhibition against Pikeville, scoring six points and grabbing four rebounds.

It’s great to see Ware back on the court after such an initially scary injury.
