Injured Louisville guard Kevin Ware is doing whatever he can to help the Cardinals in a national semifinal game in Atlanta just a week after suffering an injury that has received worldwide attention.

Ware, who suffered a gruesome broken leg in an Elite Eight victory over Duke, is wearing his No. 5 jersey today as the Cardinals play Wichita State for an opportunity to play in the national title game Monday night.

The Cardinals fell behind 8-0 early but rallied to take a 9-8 lead and television cameras focused on Ware waving his arms trying to encourage the rally and Louisville fans.

Ware has been the center of attention with the Cardinals because of the unusual, and high-profile nature of his injury last week. He suffered a compound fracture of his lower leg during a routine play while defense against the Blue Devils.
