Kevin Ware Returns, Hits 3 on 1st Shot
Just eight months after one of the most gruesome sports injuries ever, Louisville guard Kevin Ware returned to the court on Wednesday night in his first game action during an exhibition contest vs. Pikeville - and did so in style.
Ware received a standing ovation upon entering the game with 13:49 remaining and then hit a 3-point basket on his first field goal attempt since the broken leg he suffered against Duke in last March’s Elite Eight. Ware added three free throws to finish with six points in the 90-61 victory.
We can’t wait until Ware sells the movie rights to his story as soon as his college eligibility is up.
