08:23 AM ET 04.01 | The Louisville Cardinals defeated the Duke Blue Devils, 85-63, on Sunday to win the NCAA Midwest Regional trophy and punch a ticket to the Final Four -- quite an accomplishment for a team that watched as teammate Kevin Ware was lost to such a gruesome leg injury. And, shortly thereafter, Ware got his hands on the prize himself. Sunday night the peypeysiva Instagram account shared [a] photo of Ware in a hospital bed with the trophy. ... Also Sunday night, Louisville stated that surgery on Ware's leg was a success. Experts do not expect the injury to be career-ending, but the sophomore guard faces a long recovery period. Louisville faces Wichita State in the national semifinal in Atlanta.

Ouch. They are saying that BB players usually have small stress fractures while they are playing. This factored in along with the awkward landing. Glad to hear he is doing well, the surgery was a success and it shouldn't be career ending.

That was a nasty injury. Now all we need is Michigan to go down, which they will.
