Former Louisville Guard Kevin Ware to Transfer to Georgia State

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

Kevin Ware, who broke his leg during the 2013 NCAA Tournament, announced on Twitter on Friday night, that he will join the Georgia State Panthers next season.

The man whose leg made the entirety of the college basketball world hold its breath has picked his new school.

Kevin Ware, who is most famous for breaking his leg in horrendous fashion during the 2013 NCAA Tournament, will transfer to Georgia State, an announcement that he made on Twitter on Friday night. The junior had applied for a medical redshirt for this season after appearing in nine game for Louisville, and could have two years of eligibility remaining.

Ware announced in March that he was leaving the school where he helped inspire a National Title run. The announcement came a day following the Cardinals loss to Kentucky in the Sweet 16.

This has been a tough season for the junior who triumphantly returned to the court with a 3-pointer in an exhibition game to open the season. He was later arrested for reckless driving and struggled through practices, still limping on the leg he broke. After a setback in his recovery, he was shut down for the year, and stopped appearing at games or practices.

During the 2012-13 season, Ware averaged 4.5 points for the Cardinals and shot 40 percent from 3-point range. He was limited to just 53 minutes this year.

The move to Georgia State is a return home for Ware, whose mother and stepfather live in Atlanta. He will add to a stacked backcourt for the Panthers, featuring Ryan Harrow and RJ Hunter, making Georgia State again a favorite in the Sun Belt after going 17-1 in the league this season. The Panthers lost in overtime in the conference championship to Louisiana-Lafayette.
