Pitino: Ware is in good spirits

INDIANAPOLIS, In (WYMT) - University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino paid a visit to his sophomore guard Kevin Ware late Monday morning.

He was all smiles as he left Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis after visiting his sophomore guard
Kevin Ware.

Ware broke his leg Sunday before his team marched toward the NCAA Final Four.

The Cardinals defeated Duke 85-63.

Pitino said Ware's surgery went well, that he's in good spirits and
not in any pain.

Medical staff is working to ensure that no infection sets in.

Pitino said Ware could return to Louisville on Tuesday and will travel
with the team to Atlanta for the Final Four later this week.

Ware suffered a horrifying fracture in the first half of Sunday's Midwest Regional final when he landed awkwardly after trying to contest a three-point shot.

He broke his leg in two places.

Ware was taken off the court on a stretcher to Methodist Hospital as his stunned teammates openly wept.

Despite the victory, all thoughts were with Ware.
