Just before tipoff against Wichita State, Kevin Ware headed for the Louisville bench. He told CBS earlier that, if Louisville wins tonight and on Monday night, he’ll find a way to help his teammates cut down the nets — broken leg, crutches and all.

“I’ll be climbing on that ladder,” he said (via CBS). “My leg’s going to be broke, but I’ll be celebrating.”
