Louisville’s Kevin Ware, who gruesomely injured his leg in last night’s game against Duke before telling his teammates to just win the game as he was being carted off the court, was standing up on crutches less than 24 hours after the injury.
Ware’s teammates were visibly shaken and inspired by him. They visited him after they defeated Duke 86-63 and let him take photos with the East Regional championship trophy. Louisville’s senior associate athletic for media relations tweeted the photo on Monday.
In the photo, Ware is wearing an East Regional championship hat.
Ware’s family is from Atlanta, where the Final Four will be played next week.
