Kevin Ware is walking, one step at a time.
The sophomore guard returned to Louisville’s campus on crutches Tuesday, two days after the world watched Ware break his right leg on national TV. Ware wrote on Facebook that “the first step is always the hardest one to take.”
His teammates are preparing to take on Wichita State Saturday in Atlanta for the Final Four. Coach Rick Pitino said he wants Ware to travel with the team, but an official decision won’t come until Wednesday after Ware’s doctors are consulted.
Ware’s injury was one of the most gruesome in sports history, as his leg completely shattered and caused many of his teammates to cry or throw up. Ware was carted off the court, then told the team to “just go win the game.”
