The University of Louisville announced late tonight that guard Kevin Ware underwent successful surgery at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis to repair a broken bone in his right leg. Ware suffered the injury with six and a half minutes left in the first half of UofL’s win over Duke.

According to a press release, Ware had the bone re-set, a wound from the injury closed and a rod inserted into his right tibia. He will remain in Indianapolis until at least Tuesday, when he should be able to return home to Louisville.

After the Cardinals’ win, the talk in the locker room and on the court was about winning the game for Kevin Ware.
