In the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, Louisville put the finishing touches on the Final Four by rolling past Duke 85-63 to win the Midwest Regional. Russ Smith scored 23 points and teammate Kevin Ware suffered a gruesome broken leg in the first half. The injury occurred as Ware tried to contest a shot and the leg buckled when he landed, bending almost at a right angle.

Earlier, Michigan earned a trip to Atlanta next week by dominating Florida 79-59 and winning the South Regional title.

Elsewhere, Syracuse and Wichita State won their games on Saturday.
