Kevin Ware was playing for The Cardinals in the Midwest Regional Final when he landed awkwardly after trying to contest a 3-point shot. ”Basically his leg went one way and his shoe went another and the bone split,” Pitino said. ”There’s no preexisting thing that makes it do that.” The horrific injury devastated his teammates, and several fell to the court crying. During a 2-hour surgery Sunday night, doctors reset Ware’s broken tibia and inserted a rod into the bone. Because the bone broke through the skin, Pitino said doctors are monitoring Ware to make sure no infection develops.
