URGENT - Kentucky Louisville Ware
(CNN) -- University of Louisville guard Kevin Ware, recalling the moments after he severely broke his shin bone in Sunday's nationally televised NCAA tournament basketball game against Duke, told reporters Wednesday how he tried to reassure his teammates he'd be OK and focus their attention on advancing to the Final Four. "(I said to myself), I'm either going to cry ... or I'm just going to try to say some words (to help the team). We beat Duke by 22, so I guess my word got through good enough."
