Kevin Douglas Ware Jr. (born January 3, 1993) is an American professional basketball player.

He is a former player for the University of Louisville.

Ware received widespread media attention when he suffered an open fracture of the tibia in his right leg during an Elite Eight game against the Duke Blue Devils on March 31, 2013.

Early life

Ware was born on January 3, 1993, in Bronx, New York, to Lisa Junior and Kevin Ware, Sr. Ware grew up with three sisters: Donna, Brittney, and Khadijah. Ware and his family moved to Atlanta when he was 14, but shortly after, they moved to Rockdale County, Georgia, so the family could live in "more of a quiet area." Scout and both listed Ware as a four-star prospect out of a possible five stars, while ESPN gave him a 92/100 rating. He had a broken hand in July 2010. Ware had signed a letter-of-intent with Tennessee, but changed his mind after Bruce Pearl was fired as Tennessee's basketball coach. His choices were down to Georgia and Louisville before picking the Cardinals.


Kevin Ware Career

College career

Ware played little minutes in his freshman season. His minutes began to rise in his sophomore year as Louisville's first guard off the bench to replace Peyton Siva or Russ Smith. However, Ware had disciplinary problems, and Rick Pitino suspended him for a game against Pittsburgh. Ware's output and minutes increased for the remainder of the season after his return. Ware had a career-high 5 assists against Colorado State and then scored a career-high 11 points against Oregon in two games in the NCAA tournament.

Ware landed awkwardly on his right leg during attempting to block a shot, resulting in an open fracture that protruded several inches out of his shin. Players and coaches on both teams were obviously shaken at the news of the injury. Ware said, "I'm fine, just win the game," he said while lying on the floor of the courthouse. Ware was taken by ambulance after being delayed at courtside for several minutes and was escorted on a stretcher and was transported by ambulance to Methodist Hospital of Indianapolis. In a two-hour procedure, surgeons stitched a rod into his tibia. Louisville beat Duke 85-63 in a tribute to Ware. As the game came, Louisville forward Chane Behanan wore Ware's jersey in a show of solidarity for his colleague.

Many NBA players showed their love for Ware by posting their sympathies on Twitter, including LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Durant. Former NFL quarterback Joe Theismann and former running back Michael Bush of the Louisville Cardinals were unable to help others recover from the same injury. Ware accompanied the team in Atlanta to the Final Four, where he competed with his teammates as they defeated the national championship game (which was later postponed due to the 2015 sex scandal).

Ware returned to competitive basketball for the first time after an exhibition game against the University of Pikeville, and the game was played midway through the second half. Ware received standing ovation upon entering the game and another after shooting his first time, finishing with six points and four rebounds. He appeared in nine games this season.

Ware declared that he would redshirt the 2013–2014 season in order to continue his recovery. He later decided to transfer to a school closer to the state of Georgia, such as Tennessee, Georgia State, or Auburn.

Ware officially transferred to Georgia State University on April 12, 2014. Ware was granted a waiver from its law requiring transfers to wait out a year for two years, and he started the 2014–15 season with two years of eligibility, and the NCAA gave Ware a waiver from its legislation requiring transfers to wait out a year. Ware was named the Most Valuable Player of the 2015 Sun Belt Conference men's basketball tournament, leading Georgia State to victory in the championship game against third seeded Baylor in the first round, before losing to Xavier in the second round.

Ware signed with the Czech team BC Brno on November 25, 2016, after starting the season with the Finnish team Kauhajoen Karhu.
