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.

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."
