Kevin Ware Had Surgery on His Broken Leg, Then Louisville Surprised Him with the Midwest Region Trophy [Photo]

Kevin Ware, the Louisville guard who suffered a gruesome broken leg in the Cards’ romp over Duke in the Elite 8, had successful surgery Sunday night, the school announced.

After midnight, photos began to surface of Ware in the hospital holding Louisville’s Elite 8 trophy. This photo (and the others floating around the web) don’t appear photoshopped, as Russ Smith, the Louisville guard, posted one on his Instagram.
