Probably the worst injury ever seen in a college basketball game. A close-up shot of the injury is after the cut. Once again this is not for the skeamish.

Ware, 20, was taken to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis to repair his leg. School officials said the leg, broken in two places, was reset and a rod inserted into his right tibia. ESPN reported Ware will remain in Indianapolis until at least Tuesday.

Louisville head coach Rick Pitino said Ware immediately thought about his team the moments after sustaining the injury. Ware told the team that he would be fine and to win the game, according to Pitino.

“The bone’s 6 inches out of his leg and all he’s yelling is, ‘Win the game, win the game,’” Pitino said after the game. Screen Shot 2013-04-01 at 9.29.05 AM“I’ve not seen that in my life. … Pretty special young man.”

Pitino said Ware will need a year to recover from the injury before returning to basketball.
