Yahoo Sports reported:

Louisville guard Kevin Ware suffered a gruesome compound fracture in the first half of the Cardinals’ Midwest regional final against Duke on Sunday.

Ware rushed out to challenge a 3-point shot by Duke’s Tyler Thornton and appeared to land awkwardly. When laying on the court, the tibia bone in his right leg appeared to be protruding from the skin. The game was stopped for a prolonged period of time and a pall fell over Lucas Oil Stadium.

Louisville’s players reacted with anguish. Chane Behanan fell to the floor sobbing. Russ Smith was crying heavily. Coach Rick Pitino was wiping tears from his face.

Ware asked to speak to his teammates and Pitino called them over. The guard reportedly offered words of encouragement, telling the team to press on and beat Duke.

Louisville went on to beat Duke 85-63.
