In Sunday night's NCAA men's basketball tournament, Louisville guard Kevin Ware suffered a gruesome injury. Coach Rick Pitino rallied the team and led them to a victory over Duke. When accidents like this happen, coaches are tasked with rallying team members and keeping them focused.
Kevin Ware's injury may be the most talked-about story from the weekend's games, but there was other big news. On the women's side, Louisville shocked No. 1-ranked Baylor, knocking out the defending champions. On the men's side, Wichita State continues its surprising run.
Top overall seed Louisville will face Wichita State at the Georgia Dome next Saturday, while Michigan takes on Syracuse in the other national semifinal. The winners advance to the April 8 championship.
