Louisville continues to bask in basketball success

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - One by one, students walked slowly past the food court in the Student Activities Center on the Louisville campus and waited their turns to sign the makeshift 3-by-5 foot poster of injured basketball player Kevin Ware.

'We stand behind you, Kevin! Get Well soon (hash)5!' the poster read.

Meant as a tribute to Ware, it could also have been a giant get well card for a school torn between despair for his devastating injury and excitement for one of the best sports days in school history.

Ware broke his right leg in two places Sunday, a horrifying injury that inspired the Cardinals to beat Duke and earn their second consecutive trip to the Final Four. Hours later, the Louisville women's team upset defending champion Baylor and 6-foot-8 Brittney Griner.
