A good win

Despite picking Duke to win over Louisville in this weekend's college basketball March Madness tournament, it seemed like all was right with the world when the Cardinals advanced to the NCAA's Final 4 this week.

Louisville won despite a severe injury suffered by guard Kevin Ware near the end of the first half of play against Duke. Ware came down hard on his right led, breaking it in two places. He spent two hours in surgery in Indianapolis, where he will begin his recovery Monday.

At the point of injury, the game got extremely emotional for Louisville and its fans. Every timeout, the Cardinals, with Kevin in their hearts, talked about Kevin.

In the final seconds of the game, one Cardinal put on Ware's jersey and cheered from the bench. The fans chanted: "Kevin Ware! Kevin Ware!"

The Cardinals went on to win the game for Ware.

And "win" is almost an understatement. The Cardinals came out on top by 18 points, 85-63.

Clearly, someone around here didn't know anything about Louisville's capabilities before Sunday. Today, we couldn't be happier for the team and its guard who is on the mend and will be back to play another day.

Go, Louisville!
