Kevin Ware Rests On Friday During Louisville's Final Four Trip

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) — A room packed with reporters hoping to interview injured Louisville Kevin Ware had to settle for one of his best friends on the Cardinals team.

On Friday, Ware and forward Chane Behanan were scheduled to field questions together, but the decision was made to give Ware a day of rest his surgically repaired right leg when he fell asleep at the team's dinner table on Thursday night.

"Once he gets one minute to relax, he was just dozing at the table and he went on to his room to go to sleep," Behanan said.

Louisville spokesman Kenny Klein said Ware needed Friday's rest so he can attend Saturday's semifinal game against Wichita State.
