Louisville head coach Rick Pitino and trainers tend to injured guard Kevin Ware during the Midwest Regional final against Duke on Sunday in Indianapolis.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — School officials say that Louisville guard Kevin Ware has been taken to a local hospital after sustaining a broken lower right leg during the first half of Sunday's Midwest Regional final against Duke.

The injury occurred with 6:33 left in the first half as Duke's Tyler Thornton made a 3-pointer. Ware tried to contest the shot and his leg buckled when he landed, bending almost at a right angle.

Louisville spokesman Kenny Klein said hospital officials told the school that Ware was "resting comfortably" and that the pain is "under control."

Klein also said that a team of doctors is being assembled to treat Ware but was uncertain whether that meant Ware would undergo surgery in Indianapolis at Methodist Hospital.
