I watched it in the Tourney thread... I don't even want to click on it again. I really don't know how any human leg can break like that on a routine jump and landing.
Seriously how the fug does happen?

That actually made me nauseous. I've never seen anything that bad before.

Already saw that one and Lattimore's. You could see Ware's bone. It was the worst i've ever seen.

i hope the doc's test his marrow. just be sure there is nothing deeper within his leg.
That's the first thing I thought.

Based on the descriptions, don't want to.

University of Louisville basketball player Kevin Ware underwent successful surgery Sunday night to repair the gruesome open fracture of his right tibia he suffered during the Cardinals' 85-63 win over Duke in the Midwest Regional final, and he is expected to remain in Indianapolis until at least Tuesday, U of L announced.
Ware had the bone reset, and a rod was inserted into leg during the operation that lasted about two hours. The wound caused by the bone puncturing through his skin in his lower leg was closed.
U of L's late-night release said no timetable for recovery has been set, but the early prognosis from U of L sports medicine director Fred Hina - given right after the game while Ware was in surgery - was that Ware is bound for a lengthy recovery, but the injury is not likely a career-ending one.
