Louisville guard Kevin Ware suffered a horrible injury on his lower right leg today during the team's game against Duke in the 2013 NCAA Tournament.

Louisville made it to the Elite Eight and they were leading 21-20 when Ware suffered the gruesome injury in which his lower right leg seemingly seemed to snap in half. The injury occured with only 6:33 left in the first half of the game.

The graphic nature of the injury made fellow team mates emotional, with some seen crying and turning to each other for support, while other reports say people nearby have vomited.

The injury happened when he jumped up to block a three-point shot by Tyler Thornton of Duke. However, his leg collapsed upon landing. He was later taken away on a stretcher and the game resumed several minutes later.

Ware suffered a broken leg and was taken to a hospital near the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, according to CBS. He pain is reportedly "under control."
