INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Louisville guard Kevin Ware has been carried off the court after badly injuring his lower right leg during the Midwest Regional final against Duke on Sunday.

An official tells several reporters that a bone snapped. Trainers immediately covered the leg with a towel and placed Ware on a backboard, then lifted him onto a stretcher.

Teammates huddled around Ware as he left the court. They were clearly upset when the injury, embracing each other and crying. Coach Rick Pitino wiped tears from his eyes.

The injury occurred with 6:33 left in the first half as Duke's Tyler Thornton made a 3-pointer to get the Blue Devils within 21-20. Ware tried to contest the shot and his leg buckled when he landed.

Some Louisville fans began chanting his name as he was put on the stretcher.
